Saint Cecilia

The artist has represented the patron of music as a lady dressed in luxurious adornment appropriate to her high rank. On her neck shines a fine necklace of stones from which stands out a cameo like those that are treasured today in the oldest numismatic cabinets, joined by intaglios and other kinds of glyptic arts along with their coin collections.
