Saint Cecilia

 

 1620-5, Pietro da Cortona

 

A painting in the National Gallery, London.

 

A painting that I would sometimes admire after a lovely ice cream from Leceister Square.

 

It always seemed to be a Summer painting.

 

Especially when it is hot and sticky outside.

 

In this room on a day like this it is grateful to enjoy the air-condition maintained equally cool.

 

A glance at the newspaper and then fully appreciate this gorgous painting.
