Marie-Antoinette’s Harp Music was Marie Antoinette's passion and she had great talent. She could read music, sing & play the clavichord. The harp was her favorite instrument and her teacher was the gifted Philippe Joseph Hinner. This harp was made by Jean-Henri Naderman, luthier and harp-maker to the Queen, and was delivered in November, 1774. It is decorated with lilies & a cherub bearing the Queen’s arms. The sound board has paintings of Peace & Minerva, patroness of artists.
