Spanish Cherub Playing Trombone

Just added the image and caption below to the Trombone History Timeline (17th century, 2nd half). I’ll also be adding it to the HubPages article, Trombone History: Cherubs Playing the Trombone.


1689—Seville, Spain: The church of the Hospital de los Venerables Sacerdotes, with walls and ceiling painted by Juan Valdés and his son Lucas Valdés, is completed. Among the numerous instrument-playing cherubs depicted on the ceiling is a cherub playing the trombone (see detail and full image below; public domain).
