Winter has come. Snow fell and melted. Slush, air is moist. Darkness is longer and too early in the evening. And how had been winter 550 years ago?
The famous Dutch artist Pieter Brueghel (1526 -1569) showed winter in his painting ‘The Hunters in the Snow’
I love watching how fun winter days were 550 years ago. People went to ice fishing, skated on the frozen lake.
They went to the church too in Sunday morning.
and drove in a sleigh for some wood and food, they stoked ovens to warm their houses.
and they went to hunt to feed their families.
The photo 'The Hunters in the Snow' was taken by me in the Kunsthistorischen Museums, Vienna.
