About This Work

This delicate sketch depicts a lady playing at the piano. Music was a favourite form of indoor recreation in Victorian times and no house was complete without a piano, whether a grand piano in the drawing room or an upright piano in the parlour.
Many young ladies were expected to perform at social gatherings & functions, and would be judged as to their training and practice by their proficiency in playing the piano before a genteel audience. Among women, the piano was one of the very few areas where a she could express and distinguish herself.
