Angel Trombonist in Baroque Germany

I added the below image and caption to the Trombone History Timeline (1626-1650). I also added it to both the collection of angel trombonists and the collection of images demonstrating the grip of the early trombone.

Although this painting was created a generation before J.S. Bach was born, the location is quite close to where the composer grew up in Lower Saxony and Thuringia.
