This drawing (on several pieces of paper joined) represents musicians playing stringed instruments. The other side of the sheet contains a drawing which depicts musicians in a loggia.

Bramer is best known for his treatment of historical subjects, but he also dabbled in genre scenes both as a draftsman and as a painter.
