Commentary

ARTWORK
Part of the Coronation of the Virgin compartment of the retablo mayor from the church of Santa Maria de Segueró, today in the Museu d’’Art de Girona—.

INSTRUMENT
Ballester comments that, even though a schematic representation, it is clear that it contains the key elements by which vihuelas were identified in the sixteenth century, even though the pegbox is more along the lines of older representations, more like a lute, and recalls images from the preceding century.
