Still Life with Musical Instruments (Bombard, Mandola, Violin, Flute, Sheet of Tableture, Casket, Books, Aples, with Curtain)

Evaristo Baschenis

On the table, starting on the left, we see a low-pitched shawn, a mandora, a violin
with a bow and a tablature, a system of musical notation for string instruments. Books, fruit and a flute before a curtain complete the composition constructed on the basis of strict scientific rules reflecting the treatises on perspective and the wooden marquetry of the 15th century. Such naturalistic details as the fingerprints in the dust on
the mandora may be interpreted as a warning pointing to the inexorable passage of time.
