With the annual Patron of Art Edition Montblanc celebrates the contribution of historical patrons of arts since 1992. With the Patron of Art Edition 2014 Montblanc pays tribute to the grand master of piano manufacturing, Henry E. Steinway – the man who revolutionized the world of music, dedicating his life to the advancement of the arts.

Henry E. Steinway

German-born Heinrich Engelhard Steinweg (1797 – 1871) built his first pianos in his kitchen, before immigrating to the United States to set up one of the greatest legacies in modern music history. With his countless patents, Steinway pioneered the modern piano and set the high standards that still prevail in piano manufacturing today.

Available in two editions, the design of the writing instrument is masterfully shaped by Steinway’s vision, celebrating both his remarkable piano innovations, and his outstanding contribution as an influential patron of the arts. He supported many artists through the Steinway Artists’ Programme that still promotes musicians today, and he made music accessible to large audiences at the Steinway Hall, once New York City’s largest concert venue.

The Limited Edition 4810 – precious in black and gold

Created with traditional manufacturing techniques and the quest for perfection in Montblanc’s Atelier in Hamburg the Montblanc Patron of Art Edition Henry E. Steinway 4810 features the distinctive black and gold colour combination of a classic Steinway grand piano, with the barrel in deep black lacquer and gold-plated fittings. The fountain pen’s cap is decorated with the heart of the iconic music instrument – the harp, or overstrung piano. Hidden inside the piano, these strings play a central role in producing the instrument’s unmistakable sound, much like Steinway’s discreet role in shaping modern music history.
