Description:Large mid 19th century oil on canvas full length portrait of a woman wearing a black mourning dress, possibly Jenny Lind (1820-1887). The subject holds sheet music titled "Auf Flugeln des Gesanges," (On Wings of Song), a melody written in 1834 by composer Felix Mendelssohn (with whom Lind reputedly had a love affair; Medelssohn died in 1847, and Lind, who married Otto Goldschmitt in 1852, continued to perform the song).

Later laurel-molded giltwood frame. Note: while this portrait carries an oral history of portraying Lind, a famous singer of her day who frequently performed this song, the subject could also be Mendelssohn's sister Fanny, a composer in her own right, who was married to a painter, Wilhelm Hensel. It was reportedly sold through C.G. Sloan Auctioneers in Washington, DC in the early 20th century with an attribution to painter Anna Massey Lea Merritt (1844-1930).

Unsigned. 59" H x 49 1/2" W sight, 67" x 54" framed.

Jenny Lind Johanna Maria Lind (6 October 1820-2 November 1887) better known as Jenny Lind was a Swedish opera singer, and she was often known as the Swedish Nightingale. She was one of the most highly regarded singers of the 19th century, she performed in soprano roles in Sweden and all across Europe, and undertook an extraordinarily popular concert tour of America beginning in 1850.
