Big girls in art: Woman Playing Cello

Filed under: Art — Francesca @ 7:43 am

Here we have the beautiful big girl who is playing the cello. She even has the little cherub to hold her music for her.

Francesca asks: What is she thinking about?

A poster print of this painting is available here.


  1. To me, it looks like she’s thinking “Dead GOD: will this ever END?!?!”
    That cherub is holding her music at an angle far too low for her to read, making her miss notes in a medley to the queens of fashion… they have cursed her with wearing those God-awful puffy sleeves…. DEFINITELY not flattering to the figure. :S

  2. I think she is thinking “I wonder if I can nail this cherub in the belly button with my bow without looking”.

  6. She is thinking, “This artist, I hate him. Anyone who has picked up a cello even once will see that I am not really playing. I am not sitting sensibly forward on my seat, with my knees clasping the cello. I am holding it at such an angle that I cannot even see the A string, let alone reach it with the bow. But no, he wants the `angelic’ pose so he can add the stupid little putto as well. When I am finally released from this idiot project I will loosen the hairs of the bow and garotte the artist therewith.”

  7. Why didn’t they send me a grown up naked Cupid to hold my music?

  9. “Why is this infernal jackass painting a cello when it is clear by my bow grip and stance that I’m really playing a tpo-small contrabasso? Ok, so it’s got an extra lump, what of it?
