Lithograph of a group of 19th century instrumentalists by H.J. Backer after a drawing by David Joseph Blès (1821-1899)

[Paris]: [ca. 1855]. Image size 156 x 198, sheet size 197 x 238. Printed on china paper and laid down to mounting sheet. Signed by the artist.

This humourous scene depicts six musicians plyaing the violin, flute double bass, trombone and [?]clarinet. A double bass player offers amorous advances to a young lady holding a tray of drinks, a dog and cat play in the foreground, and there is a general sense of confusion in the music performance.
