oil on canvas, unlined  A later copy after Frans Hals' painting of 'circa' 1624–26, today in the Louvre, Paris (inv. no. R.F. 1984-32).1 The lute player may be an itinerant musician, or perhaps a court jester – as his very jolly appearance might suggest, or even a theatrical figure – as indicated by his fantastical costume. 1 https://www.louvre.fr/en/oeuvre-notices/buffoon-lute
