'New' Bruegel 2

Here's a tweaked version of Pieter Bruegel the Elder's newly discovered The Wine of Saint Martin’s Day (1565-1568), a poor photo of which I posted on Friday (scroll down or CLICK). I've raised the brightness, contrast and gamma settings to improve the clarity. The painting still needs much restoration work. Click the title link to view a larger, untweaked image. Below is a detail from the painting showing a young monk or friar running to grab his share of wine, while a ragged peasant drinks from his own bowl.
