The Lute Player
The Lute Player is a painting completed by Orazio Gentileschi c. 1612–1615. It depicts a young woman in a golden dress with a lute, turned away from the observer, concentrating her attention on the nineteen-stringed instrument and listening intently to a note. The work, which exhibits influences from Caravaggio, has been variously identified as a genre painting, an allegory of hearing, and as a portrait of the goddess Harmonia. The Lute Player is now held at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.Painting: Orazio Gentileschi
