"There is a classicist feeling in this fine design, which makes us assume it's the Muse of Music we see here, Euterpe herself, singing the praises of piano manufacturer Schiedmayer. That would also fit with the personality of the designer, a classically educated pedagog, writer and all-around artist of Karlsruhe: he studied graphic arts and architecture there, took up painting in Paris, and taught interior design and landscaping at the Karlsruhe Technical High School for many years. He also wrote technical books, acted as director of a Black Forest music school, and even got involved in a local manufacture of majolica". (Rennert, PAI-XXV, 374)
