Giovanni Battista Trotti, called "il Malosso", Cremona, 1555 - Parma, 1619

To the left of the picture a courtesan plays the lute.

The lute 7 course is meticulously reproduced, with the board, the pike, the bridge, the keyboard and its fillets, the neck all blacks; the perforated rose soundboard and the pegbox too little overthrown are a bit approximate.
