In 1609 a Bolognese artist by the name of Guido Reni painted a version of what is typically called an “angel concert” in one of the chapels of Rome’s San Gregorio Magno. I have already posted several black and white views of this fresco, as well as what may be a preparatory drawing, in Trombone History: From the Balcony. You can also see the painting in broader historical context in the 17th century timeline (first half). I bring it up again here because I recently came upon a couple of nice color views of the work and thought they might be worth posting. Here they are, below. In my opinion, it’s one of the most beautiful of the many Baroque artworks that include trombone. Enjoy!
