A well carved white Statuary marble maiden musician seated on a rock dressed in simple 18th century garb playing a guitar with her attentive, adoring tousle-haired dog lying beside her.
French / Italian, 19th century.

NOTES : The Latin guitar developed from the Cithara and the Oud. The Moorish Oud retained the rounded back, multiple sound holes and wide fingerboard of the oud. The Latin guitar, on the other hand, had a more narrow neck, a flat back and one sound hole. Despite having only four strings, the Latin guitar of the 11th century is clearly the predecessor of the modern guitar, which preceded the Mandolin,developed later in Italy
