1. Sainte Cécile. Photographer Baron Adolph de Meyer. Photogravure. Troisième Exposition d’Art Photographique (1896).


    This early religious study portrait by Baron de Meyer depicts a young woman (with halo etched in plate) playing a musical instrument, possibly a clavicytherium (upright harpsichord). The title makes reference to Saint Cécile, who was the patron saint of music and singers.
