Pieter Bruegel the Elder's oil painting The Wedding Dance is featured on this microfiber eyeglass wipe.
The Wedding Dance is an 1566 oil painting by the Flemish artist Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1525-1569). The Wedding Dance is a splendid example of Bruegel's fascination with the peasant life of his native land. Public and private holidays and festivals provided him with typical situations and characters for his paintings. Here the wedding guests are very simply modeled, the positions of their arms and legs somewhat exaggerated to make them look more awkward and rustic. Although a modern audience might see this panel primarily as a genre painting, Bruegel's contemporaries would have noted its moralizing overtones: frenzied dance and lustful behavior could lead to sin and damnation.
The original oil on canvas work is part of the regular collection at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Be sure to view it on your next visit to the Detroit Institute of Arts.
These microfiber eyeglass wipes are a nice memento of this painting and come in a see through plastic case.
