An art cased, Gerhard Adams upright piano with a Modernist almost Brutalist style, oak case. The Brutalist style is seen in the aggressive, arrogant lines and modular planes constucting the piano cabinet. There is a simplification of form and absence of decoration.
Brutalist architecture is a style of architecture that became popular between the 1950's and mid-1970's. It emerged from the modernist architectural movement.
The English architects Alison and Peter Smithson coined the term in 1953, from the French béton brut, (beton for concrete, brut for rough, unrefined, raw), a phrase used by Le Corbusier to describe the exposed concrete walls with which he constructed many of his post-World War II buildings. Brutalist construction portrayed strength, functionality, and was cheap and became popular with with governmental and institutional buildings across the globe.
Gerhard Adam began making pianos in 1828 and was based in Wesel, Germany.
