    Important painting representing a Flemish fair.

    This village festival features peasants seated at tables, partying and dancing in a small village. The background of the painting is occupied by villagers celebrating.
    The foreground is reserved for notables who, riders, pedestrians or exiting carriages, seem to pose for the painting.

    Representations of village festivals and fairs appear with Dürer. Flemish painters fully appropriated these genre scenes and it was Brueghel the Elder who brought this style of paintings into fashion, followed by many talented painters.
    Through these paintings, they manage to transport us around, and the success comes in particular through the festive character displayed but also by the number of details teeming in these paintings.
    Here, a peasant is busy drawing water (bottom left), there another relieves himself at the foot of the wall of the house, while the priest chats with 2 women and a lone rider stares at us like if he had a message to send us!
