Commentaire



Museum's website, July 6, 2011:
Rectangular plaque which depicts a young woman within a framed border playing the violin. Her long hair falls loosely over her exposed shoulders. The raised bow touches the inner framed border and the arm of the violin extends to the lower right corner of the plaque.
