    The brown label is from the establishment that framed and/or sold this work. The white was likely cut from the margins of the print and used as an identifier for artist and title.

    It is not original as in made by Pieter Bruegel or during his lifetime. It is simply a print of an oil painting of a winter landscape by Pieter Bruegel.

    You will find different spellings of his surname, Breugel, Bruegel, Brueghel. All the same name, originally from the village of Breugel about 15k from me, in Dutch (North) Brabant.;)

    'Winter Landscape with Ice Skaters.' You could date it from the Antwerp telephone number, if you wanted to bother.

    As others have noted, the original (also known as "Winter landscape with a bird trap") was an oil painting. The image is so popular that it has been reproduced in many media (such as prints) for years. According to Sotheby's, who recently sold a copy painted by a "follower of Pieter Brueghel the Younger", dated 1622:

    "There can be little doubt that the Winter landscape with a bird trap is not only one of the best loved of all the inventions of the Brueghel dynasty, but in its beautiful evocation of a winter’s day also one of the most enduring images in Western art. Although no fewer than 127 versions of the composition have survived, only forty-five are now thought of as autograph works by Pieter Brueghel the Younger himself, with the remainder being largely workshop copies of varying degrees of quality."

    Their catalog description includes additional information about the history of the image:
