OriginalThe Hunters in the Snow, Pieter Brueghel the Elder, 1565, Oil on Wood.
This is the most famous of several winter landscape paintings by Pieter Brueghel the Elder, which are all thought to have been painted in 1565, after an unusually severe winter, that has often been cited as the onset of a severe phase in the climatic period known as the Little Ice Age.
Reason
Very famous painting by one of the greatest artists of his time, high resolution as usual in paintings from Google Art Project. Clear scan, also in thumbnail. From my search in Google, as far as I can tell, colors are accurate.

  • Support as nominator --Tomer T (talk) 17:46, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Support Solid, although I have some concern that the artist may be overrepresented at FPC (but that's certainly not part of the criteria!) — Crisco 1492 (talk) 09:55, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Comment Somewhat blurry for me, perhaps it should look like this. Brandmeistertalk 14:08, 25 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose The image linked by Brandmeister shows details lacking in the candidate's scan. Thus there must be a better scan of it out there somewhere?— Preceding unsigned comment added by Mattximus (talkcontribs) 21:22, 25 November 2013
  • Support — An iconic composition, probably the most well-known of Bruegel's works, and the perfect mood piece for late fall / early winter. Gemütlich. Sca (talk) 15:37, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose. As above, I think there are legitimate concerns about the accuracy of this scan. J Milburn (talk) 12:35, 4 December 2013 (UTC)
