One of the pen and ink, and watercolour portraits in Francsico Pacheco’s Libro de descripción. It is placed at the beginning of the eulogy of the virtues of this gentleman musician.
The vihuela is only partially illustrated. It seems a medium sized solo instrument. Seven strings are depicted, so it could be a seven course vihuela or a four-course guitar disposed 3 x 2 + 1 strings.
