Cecilia Cello Cherub Harp Martyr Mignard Musicians Patron Score Sings Tambourine Woodwind


EDITORS COMMENTS
This exquisite print depicts St. Cecilia, the patron saint of musicians, in a moment of divine inspiration. Dating back to the 2nd or 3rd century, Cecilia is shown in this timeless image playing a harp, her eyes closed in deep concentration as a cherubic angel hovers above her, singing from a score. The ethereal scene is further enhanced by the presence of other musical instruments, including a cello and a tambourine, scattered around the room. Cecilia is a revered figure in the history of Christianity, known for her unwavering faith and devotion to God. According to legend, she was a noblewoman in Rome who was betrothed to a pagan named Valerian. Despite her father's attempts to force her to deny her faith, Cecilia remained steadfast in her beliefs. In retaliation, Valerian ordered her execution. Cecilia miraculously survived the attempt, and continued to spread the word of God, even as she lay dying. This image of St. Cecilia, created by the renowned French artist Jean-Baptiste Santerre (also known as Fry or Mignard), is a testament to the enduring power of faith and the beauty of music. The delicate brushstrokes and intricate details bring the scene to life, transporting us back in time to a world of spiritual devotion and artistic expression. The print serves as a reminder of the rich history of music and its deep connection to the human spirit, as well as the enduring legacy of St. Cecilia as a symbol of faith, perseverance, and the power of art to inspire and uplift.
