Filippino Lippi and Music

McGee, Timothy J.

Renaissance and Reformation, Vol. 30, No. 3 (2007)


In addition to their value as art, paintings can also be an excellent source of information about people, events, and customs of the past. They can supply clear details about matters that are known only vaguely from written accounts, or in some cases, otherwise not known at all. For the field of music history, paintings can be informative about a number of social practices surrounding the performance of music, such as where performances took place, who attended, who performed, and what were the usual combinations of voices and instruments—the kind of detail that is important for an understanding of the place of music in a society, but that is rarely mentioned in the written accounts.

Un examen attentif des illustrations musicales dans deux tableaux de Filippino Lippi nous fait mieux comprendre les intentions du peintre. Dans le « Portrait d’un musicien », l’instrument tenu entre les mains du personnage, tout comme ceux représentés dans l’arrière-plan, renseigne au sujet du type de musique à être interprétée, et contribue ainsi à expliquer la présence de la citation de Pétrarque dans le tableau. Dans la « Madone et l’enfant avec les anges », la découverte d’une citation musicale sur le rouleau tenu par les anges musiciens suggère le propos du tableau.
