Catalogue Note

During the Renaissance and Baroque periods, the Roman martyr, Saint Cecilia, was first venerated as the patroness of musicians and church music.  She was a favorite subject of Strozzi who painted her at least fifteen times.  The painting is dateable to Strozzi's late Genoese period, before his move to Venice in circa 1630/31.

This painting will be included in the forthcoming catalogue raisonné of the works of Bernardo Strozzi by Camillo Manzitti.
