Cristoforo Moretti (Cremona, ante 1451 - 1485 c.)

1460 c. - S. Genesius

Compartment of a dismembered polyptych depicting the Madonna with Child and saints already in the Chapel of S. Aquilino of the Basilica of S. Lorenzo Maggiore in Milan.

Instrument depicted:

Rebec: Form of the piriforme case, probably in monobloc with neck and pegbox. The soundboard maybe leather in the bridge area, to which there are two C-shaped harmonics holes, and wood in the upper part, with a perforated rosette, united with the keyboard. It is armed with 3 strings, as shown by the pegs in the sinkle pegbox with anthropomorphic head at the top. The bow is archaic, perhaps in cane bent down.
