Concert c. 1620,
Valentin de Boulogne (1591 - 1632), France

This violinist seems to be using every aid he can! - arm on the table, violin high (nearly against the neck), and the chin all ready for use.

... the right-hand thumb position is hard to see - but I think the height of his hand rules out an under the frog position.
