The Organ Rehearsal (1885). Henry Lerolle (French, 1848-1929). Oil on canvas. Met.
Set in the choir loft of the church of Saint-François-Xavier in Paris, it features members of Lerolle’s intimate circle, including his wife (bare-headed) and her sisters, in fashionable matching hats; his brother-in-law, composer Ernest Chausson, plays the organ. The painter himself gazes outward at left. Shown at the Salon of 1885. One critic recalled, “spectators … spoke low before it, as if waiting for … the voice of the singer to be heard.”
