Man playing the violin c. 1650
Hendrick Sorgh (c.1610 -1670) Holland
I love this little drawing - you really get the feeling that our violinist is
his music. And perhaps as befits a folk fiddler, with a short bow, and thumb under the frog bow hold. The original is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and you can access it on the internet here
, where you can examine the drawing in great detail.
