Saint Cecilia (1620-1625). Bernardo Strozzi (Genoese, Baroque, 1581/1582-1644). Oil on canvas. The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. From the 15th century, St. Cecilia was associated with music, a pleasurable, popular subject represented here by the violin (on the floor), the lute (under her right hand) and organ pipes, vaguely visible at the upper left. In terms of style, the lighter colors and loose brushwork can be attributed, at least in part, to Strozzi’s admiration for the work of Rubens.
