Changing gears. Here's one depicting trombone as part of a trio at a country dance in 19C France: http://kimballtrombone.com/2016/05/16/trombone-19c-dance/

You can also see it in the context of numerous trombone dance images in this post: http://kimballtrombone.com/2016/03/02/trombone-and-the-dance/

Yeah!  Why did Beethoven put that part in the 2nd Bassoon in his Pastoral Symphony?  It really belongs to the bass trombone! ;-)

A couple of years ago I directed a university study abroad program in Vienna. Here's an image a student of mine found during a visit to Salzburg's DomQuartier. If it is a trombone (and I think it probably is), the slide appears to be submerged in a cloud...  http://kimballtrombone.com/2016/05/18/trombone-baroque-austria/

Here are 3 very similar portraits of the Distin Family Brass Quintet, the famous 19th century ensemble, before they moved away from using trombone: http://kimballtrombone.com/2016/06/20/distin-family-brass-quintet/

More trombone iconography. Here are 15 additional trombone images. They center around the role of the trombone in sacred music and trombone in mythological/allegorical settings. You will also notice the common coupling of trombone with cornetto.

Thanks to the suggestions by some on this forum, I've added this interactive Google map on trombone iconography to the website. 280 images plotted by location and color-coded by century. Click on an individual pin for more information and to view that image. Enjoy!
