MARTEN VAN CLEVE the Elder

An Outdoor Wedding Dance.

Certificate:
Dr. Klaus Ertz, 28.2.2020.

Provenance:

In February 2020, following the publication of the auction catalogue, Dr Klaus Ertz was able to examine the painting itself and has identified it as an original work by the Flemish painter Marten van Cleve. Dr Ertz is furthermore convinced that the work offered here served as a model for this motif in the works of both Pieter Brueghel the Younger and Jan Brueghel the Elder. One element which differs significantly from his contemporaries’ versions is the positioning of the bride: instead of sitting at the wedding table as is customary, she is shown dancing in the middle ground.
