Description

Flute Patent Art Print

This delightful print of a flute is a unique piece of art based on a patent archived in the United States Patent Office.

To create his work, the artist has used photographic images, legally worded descriptions and his own renderings.

Seen here is the 1914 patent submitted by silversmith, William S. Haynes. It concerns his re-invention of “toneholes”, which corrected a flaw that had troubled flute makers for decades.

This piece is part of a collection featuring patents particular to iconic musical instruments, such as the violin, grand piano and cello — all used to create gorgeous music like that heard at the Met.

  • 8” x 10” print
  • The watermark seen in the product image will not appear on the purchased piece.

History

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
