Portrait of Guilhermina Suggia – (1885 – 1950) was the great Portuguese cellist who revolutionized the instrument in technique, position and sound. Talking about his 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…when Suggia was born the cello not generally considered an appropriate instrument for young ladies to play.

    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!
