Giulio Campi, Cremona, 1508 c. - 1573 (attr.)

1527/30 - Portrait of lutenist (Francesco da Milano?)

The painting is presented in the photograph of the catalog as if the image is reversed, unless the musician portrait was left-handed.

The whitewashing of the painting does not allow you to appreciate many details of the lute, which seems armed with six courses; the design of the rosette is indefinite; the pegbox is incomplete and the tablet of the pegs seems to be heart-shaped; the keyboard shows 8 tied keys; the bridge is covered by the hand of the musician.
