Details - Detalles

The Peasant Wedding is a 1567 painting by the Flemish Renaissance painter and printmaker Pieter Brueghel the Elder, one of his many depicting peasant life. It is currently housed in the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna


The bride is under the canopy, and the groom is uncertain, but may be the man in black, to the left of the largest figure, leaning back, with a mug in hand. Two pipers play the pijpzak, and an unbreeched boy in the foreground licks a plate.

The feast is in a barn in the spring time ; two ears of corn with a rake reminding us of the work that harvesting involves, and the hard lot peasants have. The plates are carried on a door off its hinges. The main food was bread, porridge and soup.


The painting was parodied in Asterix in Belgium[1] It is also referred in David Keplinger's The Clearing, in the poem "Three Visions of the Peril of Art". The second section of this poem is called "Brueghel's 'Peasant Wedding'" and discusses in part about the missing groom. A further parody is found in Coping with Pets by Peter Corey, illustrated by Martin Brown.[2]

The American humor publication The Onion also parodied the painting.[3]
