The following link is to a beautiful mozart trio on you tube. However, its the picture selected by tue uploader to accompany the music intrigued me - it shows mary and child being entertained by angels. One is playing what is surely a baroque violin with bow.
Anyone know the painter? I'm guessing late 17, early 18C.
Also, interestingly the violin which is accurately painted is being held on the left side of the player, as normal, but with the chin over the 'E string' side of the instrument! Was this ever the case?
