Giovanni Battista Trotti detto il Malosso (Cremona, 1555 – Parma, 11 giugno 1619)

1597 - Musician Angels

The two angels are painted in the front bezel above the altar.

Represented Instruments:

Lute: This is certainly a medium format Renaissance instrument, although the strings are not painted and the pegs are difficult to count.

Basse of viola da braccio (?): The instrument is depicted in the back and you notice in the body your CC with the tips and round shoulders. The pegbox is reversed backwards, and though covered by the hand of the angel holding the bow, it looks like that of lute
