"St. Cecily (Cecilia)"
Ezio Anichini

Ezio Anichini is one of our all-time favorite artists. Working mainly in the Art Nouveau style (or Stile Liberty) of the early 20th Century, he was the master of dreamy religious portraits. Famous for his Litany of Loreto, less known are his extensive magazine covers he did for arts magazines in Italy, where he was often able to incorporate his Catholic faith into his assignments and promote Catholicism from the newsstands.

In this one from 1907, Arts and Labor: Music and Musicians Illustrated Monthly Magazine, he has painted the primary Catholic Saint of music, St. Cecelia, and placed her in the hands of her angel, who is her muse, bringing her Heavenly inspiration. Muse, music, right? The word music (musica in Italian) comes from the Greek word mousike, which means "art of the Muses."

There is something timeless and beautiful in Anichini's work, something we always find fresh and enjoyable.

** IMPORTANT ** THE IMAGE IS SMALLER THAN THE PAPER! There is a blank border all around the image of about .5" for 5x7, 1.3" for 8.5x11, 1.6" for 11x14, and 1.75" for 13x17". All Approx! The white space gives the framed picture a finished look without using a mat.
