Louis J. Rhead was able to extend the aesthetic of the Pre-Raphaelites right into the Art Nouveau period, and his work is as unmistakable as it is heart-lifting. Here, a choir of angels arrives in response to the tones from a Bechstein piano, played by a classic Pre-Raphaelite maiden wearing poet's laurels. Bechstein Pianos was founded in Berlin in 1853; the company began supplying pianos to Queen Victoria, and in 1885 they opened a branch in London, paving the way to become one of the leading piano makers in the world. It remains so today.
