St. Cecilia

St. Cecilia. Edward Reginald Frampton. Before 1918. Watercolor. Source: Vallance, p. 71. [Click on image to enlarge it.]

The painting was accompanied by the following quatrain from Tennyson’s “The Palace of Art”:

In a clear-wall’d city on the sea,
Near gilded organ-pipes, her hair
bound with white roses, slept St. Cecily;
An angel looked at her!
