Excellent realistic work depicting the beauty of baroque musical instruments. In the foreground we see a richly inlaid Baroque guitar, which although seemingly resembles classical guitar, it greatly differs from it. Even if the amount of the strings, which in baroque guitar was nine – which gives a very interesting musical color. The beauty of this instrument has praised in his works Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) [,, girl playing the guitar “about 1671 to 1672 – Kenwood House in London]. Around the guitar it seems to writhe another very interesting though simple in its form of a musical instrument, which is the seventeenth-century hunting horn. This subject as an instrument was made famous by Prince Franz Anton von Spork in 1680, when traveling in France aristocrat discovered its pure, resonant sound, where the place is enchanted. Next card between music paper emerges dulcjan – elegant bassoon. Wooden wind instrument with a beautiful, melancholy sound. The total seems to complement the hurdy-gurdy, which we see a significant portion of the right side of the work. This is one of the most interesting musical instruments, dating back to the Middle Ages. However, it was the seventeenth century brought her greatest recognition especially among the French aristocracy and instruments which were played exceptionally beautiful and richly decorated. The work is characterized by the consistency of the composition, smooth texture, precise drawing and warm but somewhat subdued color palette. Although the author does not put his signature on the painting, we can assume that it came from the circle of the eighteenth-century “realist” French. Carefully looking at the image we find a lot of similarities to the works of Nicolas Henri Jeaurat de Bertry (1728-1796) author, who did not attach importance to sign their work. Jeaurat de Bertry was one of the best French painters of the period. In 1756 he became a member of the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture and since 1757 years has exhibited his work in the famous Salon de Paris. Then, in 1761 after receiving his court painter to the king her Majesty Maria Leszczyńska moved to Versailles. [Maria Leszczynska (1703-1768) derived from Trzebnica Queen of France in the years 1725-1768]. After the death of the queen in 1768 he settled in Paris and his work has focused on the so-called portraits wearing veiled satirical. Work preserved in good condition, both the canvas and paints what. A small vertical crack in the upper right corner Without prejudice to the composition.
