Unknown, Netherlands School

English: Portrait of a Musician holding Bagpipes
English: "This unusual picture shows a musician of the early seventeenth century. He stands with the tools of his trade, an elaborately decorated bagpipe, and, on the wall behind him, a violin. Although the eagle on the silver coin may suggest a German, or Habsburg connection, the picture’s style and technique, redolent of Jan Miense Molenaer’s musical subjects, points to both a Dutch artist and sitter." - Phillip Mould Gallery catalogue entry.
