Seated on a chair wearing arm-length gloves; she wears a bracelet and a cord around her neck that falls into her lap. Teresa De Giuli-Bórsi (1817-1877) an Italian soprano who studied in Milan. She was acclaimed throughout the major musical centres of Europe. She was one of the first sopranos to have been both a drammatico soprano and one conversant from the start with assoluta roles. The success and length of Giuli-Borsi's career (1839-1866) strongly suggest an enviable ease in all three registers of her voice.
