Portrait of Guilhermina Suggia

Guilhermina Suggia – (1885 – 1950) was the great Portuguese cellist who revolutionized the instrument in technique, position and sound. Talking about her temperament involves talking about music because Suggia life is always accompanied by music and cello.

She was one of the first women to make a professional career of playing the cello.She opened professional doors for women cello, until then almost closed…. Suggia was one of the first women to make a career of playing the cello at a time when prejudice against women playing this traditionally ‘masculine’ instrument was still strong.

    as my partner plays cello I could not pass this by. Beautiful work!

  • To make this painting I had to “study” the instrument and listen to music played by the Suggia. It is truly divine!
