A Couple Making Music, Cornelis Troost, 1743

A Couple Making Music, Cornelis Troost, 1743

oil on panel, h 49cm × w 68cm. More details

Music-making flourished within families during the 18th century. The man here evidently plays the recorder; his wife turns the corner of a page of a music book. Behind them a full bookcase can be seen behind a slightly open curtain. Besides being a sign of refinement, the making of music together can serve as an allusion to a harmonious marriage.
