The subject was widely employed i

Oil on panel. 1550
Kempeneer, Pieter

The six musician angels (triangle, harp, flute, castanets, a type of violin and a tambourine) decorated the doors of a tabernacle. Despite the chromatic variety, the choice of a cool palette produces a technical result close to grisaille. This dissonant, almost Mannerist effect combined with the expressionistic physical types and the rather sketchy treatment of the figures is characteristic of Ped
