Art Case Stroud Piano with Beautiful Hand Painted Chinoiserie Style Landscape paintings representing peace, tranquility, music, dancing, nature, wealth, beauty, happiness, prosperity, health and rejuvenation. Piano was manufactured in NYC in 1930’s and hand painted soon after. We just had two artists restore the paintings and our technicians refurbished the piano. The heavily carved decorative legs are Jacobean Style. The following information was provided by Asian Art Historian Doctor Ann Barott Wicks. To see her full report click on the PDF here . Here is some of what she said. “The piano is painted with willowy Chinese figures in traditional Chinese garden settings. The motifs are similar to the fanciful chinoiserie furniture decoration that was popular in 18th-century Europe. One of the painted scenes shows a scene of music and dancing. The seated woman plays a pipa, and the young man plays a bamboo flute. The long sleeves of the dancer on the right are typical and add to the effect of the dance. The flowery clothing and hat of the youth are fanciful, as is his depiction as one of the musicians. There are several garden scenes. In theory, the Chinese garden is a microcosm of the universe, and should include four important elements—mountains, water, trees, and humans. Garden architecture, such as pavilions and bridges, represents the human element even when a human being is absent. Bizarre rocks, such as those seen in the foreground of the composition below, are used to represent mountains. These gardens were built for government officials to momentarily escape the bureaucratic life and refresh themselves as if they were in the mountains. Mountains, both sacred and magical places in China for millennia, were considered places for spiritual renewal. Fishermen are idyllic characters frequently found in Chinese landscape painting, as well as poetry. They represent the simple, carefree life in natural surroundings, romanticized by the literati. A rather curious figure is a seated woman in a voluminous white dress and somewhat elaborate headgear. She faces a boy who reaches toward her. A woman alone in a garden with her son is a familiar motif in Chinese painting. Boys symbolize wealth and continuation of the family line. While the artist is unknown, she obviously had training in Chinese painting, and was more than likely Chinese. Because of the headdress and clothing, my first thought was that the woman might represent a goddess. Floral motifs decorate the music stand and keyboard cover. The flowers are probably meant to represent the peony, symbolizing wealth and beauty, and azaleas, symbol of happiness and prosperity. PIANO comes with warranty. Nationwide Delivery. This piano is a perfect candidate for a PianoDisc IQ Playersystem installation. For further information call Sonny at 631 475-8046 or email email@example.com.
Beautiful Rosewood, Art Case Hand Painted “World Renowned Historic” Pleyel Piano. 5’3″ made in 1921 rebuilt and refinished along the way. Recently hand painted gold trim added. Our technicians regulated the action and replaced the bass strings. Playel was one of the original piano makers in Europe. Playel was a French piano manufacturing firm founded by the composer Ignace Pleyel in 1807. In 1815, Pleyel’s son Camille joined him as a business partner. The firm provided pianos to Frédéric Chopin, and also ran a concert hall, the Salle Pleyel, where Chopin performed his first – and last – Paris concerts. Pleyel’s major contribution to piano development was the first use of a metal frame in a piano. Pleyel pianos were the choice of composers such as Debussy, Saint-Saëns, Ravel, de Falla and Stravinsky and of pianists and teachers Alfred Cortot, Philip Manuel and Gavin Williamson. In the 1980s, the Pleyel company bought out the Erard and Gaveau piano companies which also manufactured pianos in France. The Pleyel pianos of today incorporated improvements of these companies and others. In the last two decades, Pleyel Piano was bought by the same family which had bought the Salle Pleyel concert hall in order to revive the name and quality of Pleyel pianos. They built a new factory in the south of France and started making a line of newly designed and improved pianos. Then, in 2008, they decided to downsize the factory and lines of pianos. They moved the factory back to Paris and opened a new factory where they began introducing new pianos designed by famous designers. The red spruce used by Pleyel comes from the Fiemme Valley in Trentino, Italy. After full assembly of a piano, the instrument receives a further 30-40 hours of fine-tuning. Questions?
