“New” Work by Pieter Bruegel the Elder Identified

The Wine of Saint Martin’s Day, currently owned by a Spanish private collector, has been now been identified as a work by 16th century Flemish painter Pieter Bruegel the Elder. It has been attributed to the artist by the Museo del Prado following several months of study and the restoration (restoration work included a right to purchase option). If acquired by the Museo del Prado, this would double the number of works by Bruegel in Spain (the only other being Triumph of Death, located at the Prado).
