"The Cesar Franck Pose"

Left hand on the keys, right hand on the stops, looking down at the right hand ... "the Cesar Franck pose" in an 1885 oil painting by artist Jeanne Rongier ... at the old Cavaille-Coll console of St. Clotilde Basilica, Paris.
This is where this great master sat every week, a pose even some organists prefer today out of respect, when they have their own photo taken at the organ.
