André Leon Galtié (1908-1998) was a noted French engraver and medalist. He used the subject of Saint Cecile several times in his works, mostly for producing medals for music contests or for events with musical theme. Saint Cecilia was the Patron of music and of the blind. She is represented on the medal front as playing a lyre, while the backside is decorated with a sun and leafage, in the bottom with the inscription “Le Conseil General des Bouches du Rhone”.
