- Curator's comments
- An earlier version of this seated male figure playing the bagpipes is identified as Harlequin and is paired with Columbine playing a hurdy-gurdy (1923,0314.13), both models created by Johann Joachim Kaendler around 1740.This example is somewhat more elongated, and presumably a bit later.
