1. Harp Audition (c.1855). Moritz von Schwind (Austrian, Romantic, 1804-1871).

    Music “is certainly a very great Accomplishment to the LADIES; it refines the Taste, polishes the Mind; and is an Entertainment, without other Views, that preserves them from the Rust of Idleness, that most pernicious Enemy to Virtue.” — John Essex, 1722.
