Goes on display today. A reader writes:

I just wanted to send a quick e-mail to let you know about a conference that took place today at the Courtauld... One of twenty art historians who gave brief talks about their research was Gabriele Finaldi from the Prado Museum who spoke about Pieter Bruegel the Elder's The Wine Feast of Saint Martin. In a fantastic talk, Finaldi discussed the cleaning of this painting (begun in Spring 2010 and lasting over two years) and showed findings resulting from it, such as the newly discovered signature.  Anyway, as I saw that you'd posted the Burlington articles of this month (one of which includes recent findings of this very painting) I thought I'd share the news that the newly cleaned Bruegel is going on display at the Prado this Monday.
