Trombonists, The Perfect Little Angels

Below is another angel trombonist I just added to the Trombone History Timeline. Quite a nice little drawing, in my opinion. For many more pictures of angels playing trombone, see Angel Trombonists Throughout History: 50 Images.


c. 1610—Loreto, Italy: Artist Cristoforo Roncalli, known as “Pomarancio,” makes a set of preparatory red chalk drawings for a fresco to be painted on the cupola of the Basilica di Loreto (fresco now largely lost). Among the drawings is an angel-trombonist (see below image; public domain).




  1. Dear Dr. Kimball, Thank you for finding these pictures. I enjoy them. Regards, Michael
