    This is Sally Dige who asked if we'd include her new single and we're happy to. Mandolin makes an appearance part way through.

    Terrific UK band, The Magpies (they've now dropped the Bella, Polly and...prefix) from Yorkshire.
    The Mando player is Polly Bolton, from York.

    The sister to the right appears as if she's deeply concerned....perhaps she spied a banjo player nearby?

    I found this while exploring museums online. The painting is resident in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. It is dated about 1633 and appears to be a celebration related to a successful hunt. You can explore the museum website here: https://www.rijksmuseum.nl/nl/mijn/v...#/SK-A-4844,27

    No, when I inserted the photo I didn't realize it wouldn't display the mandolin at the lower left of the painting. It just doesn't display in the post. You'll have to follow the link to see the mandolin. It may not be a mandolin, but it's a mandolin-like object. Sorry.

    Manoela is my music teacher; she is a classically trained violinist. We have been working on the Bach Partitas.

    Here's Manoela playing Bach's Adagio from the Sonata in G minor:

    Here’s the video from a Patrick’s post. I thought she would be playing mandolin but she does a nice job on violin on that Bach.

    Yesterday on Jeopardy, the first game of the post-Alex-Trebek era, there was this clue:

    Given the clues - female painter, France, time period - the answer was Mary Cassatt, obviously. But I did not know that her career started, or entered the big time, with a painting on this subject. It is indeed quite an accomplished work.

    PS: This painting has been posted here before. But I thought the context, and the information regarding its importance in Cassatt's career, earned it a second appearance.

    Not according to the search engine. Good going! Clearly, Liz had excellent taste in mandolins.

    I see that Mary Cassatt returned to this theme. Here is another painting and a drawing. The last one may be by Manet.
