A Balcony Pipe Organ Installation

               ~ Reputed to be a painting of Johann Sebastian Bach ~
(Artist and details unavailable)
. . . one of numerous online copies of the painting, very possibly a pedagogical demonstration of correct hand positions and posture at the organ keyboard, perhaps painted during Bach's lifetime for the instruction of past, present and future organ students. N.B.: The hands appear to be a proportional match for those depicted in the classic Haussmann portrait (Bach displaying a sheet of music held in his right hand, possibly one of the canonic subjects to be found among his compositions).
