"Lady Seated at a Virginal" Johannes Vermeer, c. 1672 (National Gallery, London). And in case you are wondering, she is specifically playing the Muselar, a type of Viriginal (harpsichord family). The keyboard is placed off center to the right and the strings are plucked 1/3 the way along their sounding length. Doing that gives a warm, rich, resonant sound. via Wikipedia | #vintage #instrument #piano #art
