The extraordinary mystery of Bruegel’s painting
Revealing our painting's true past, this talk about our new display gets you beneath the paint layers of an Old Master painting to discover the truth about its past – who painted it, how and why.
Upton House has been lucky enough to do exactly this with this artwork depicting the biblical scene, entitled 'Massacre of the Innocents'. Visitor donations have enabled us to finance vital cleaning and repair work and use the latest analytical technology to reveal and share, for the first time, the exciting true story of this much-revered scene.
