Hunters In The Snow

Always thought this picture was cool but only just learned it was one of a series of six (or maybe twelve?).  Five survive.

Hunters in the Snow shows December-January.

The Gloomy Day shows February or March.

Here one is missing?

Hay Harvest shows June / July.

The Harvesters is for August / September.

Return of the Herd shows October / November.

Michael Frayn, in his novel Headlong, imagines a lost panel from the 1565 Months series resurfacing unrecognised, which triggers a mad conflict between an art (and money) lover and the boor who possesses it. Much thought is spent on Bruegel’s secret motives for painting it.

Cool.
