Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • etchings - Prints made from an etched printing plate, which is a metal plate on which a design is made by coating the plate with an acid-resistant substance, creating a design in the coating, and then exposing the plate to acid, which etches the plate where the metal is exposed. For designs incised directly into a copper plate using a burin or graver, use "engravings (prints)."
  • genre
  • lutes - Use specifically for plucked chordophones developed in the European Renaissance, having a large pear-shaped body composed of thin, narrow ribs, a flat top, central circular soundhole covered by a rose, and from seven to ten frets on the neck. For the general class of all chordophones with the plane of the strings running parallel to the resonator and a neck that serves both as string bearer and as handle, see "lutelike chordophones."
  • musical instruments - Sound-producing apparatuses whose primary function is to play music.
  • musicians - Those skilled or specializing in the art or practice of music, such as composers, conductors, and performers.
  • Netherlandish - Refers in general to cultures that have occupied the same area as the modern nation of the Netherlands in northwestern Europe along the North Sea, as well as the territory extending through medieval Flanders, which is the area of modern Belgium and part of France. For the culture of the modern nation of the Netherlands, prefer "Dutch (culture)," although usage overlaps.
  • violins - The soprano members of the violin family, having a hollow, resonating body with an incurved waist, arched top and back, and two F-shaped holes cut in the top, a neck terminating in a pegbox and scroll, a bridge, and four strings.
