Commentaire



Museum's website, July 6, 2011:
Rectangular plaque with a lower outer frame and raised inner frame borders. A woman depicted in left profile is placed in the right corner of the plaque. Shown in the act of singing, her long hair is tied with a bow at the nape of her neck and drapes around her left shoulder. In her left hand she holds music while her right is raised.
