Antique Prints and Antique Furniture


This painting was executed by Delaroche in 1836 and contrast somehow with his preceding works. It shows St Cecilia, saint patron of music, attending by angels kneeling before her. The very bright palette and somewhat archaic treatment provides a sense of ideal spirituality, which would influence the next generation of painter including Ingres (1780-1867).

This engraving was published on India paper by Rittner and Goupil, Boulevart, Mountmartre circa 1850. It bears the Rittner and Goupil blind stamp and was previously in the private collection of Baron von Schroder. It has been reframed to the conservation standard
