Description

Hand colored engraving of a man playing a marimba – a very exotic musical instrument for 1722. It is in excellent condition with a gold framed inner mat surrounded by a lovely marbled mat surrounding it, all finished in a stylish gold and black frame. This piece comes from a collection of 18 framed prints from engravings of musical instruments from the book by Gabinetto Armonico, which was published in 1722. The book had a total of 150 instruments. The plates were engraved by a Flemish artist working in Italy, Arnold van Westerhout (1651-1729.)
