Taken from the Montblanc Site.. The stylish and elegant Patron of Art Edition Hommage à Andrew Carnegie recalls the artistic style that Carnegie supported so enthusiastically: art nouveau. The clip of the pen is a graceful female figure, whose wings wrap around the cap of the pen like a butterflys. The black of the barrel of Edition 4810 provides a striking contrast to this delicate fretwork effect in 925 sterling silver.
Andrew Carnegie is still considered one of the greatest patrons of culture in the modern world. A steel tycoon who emigrated from Scotland to the USA, he was firmly convinced that wealthy people were morally obliged to dedicate themselves to charitable works. So he spent more than 350 million dollars almost his whole fortune on cultural foundations, public libraries and cultural programs, and on fostering talented art nouveau artists, the most fashionable artists of the day.
