Antonio Stradivari, Cremona, 1712, “Viotti, Hottinger, Demanet”

 

This fine golden-period Stradivari is best known from its illustration in the iconic catalog of Henry Hottinger’s collection, which was published by the Wurlitzer firm in 1967. The earliest notice of the violin, however, is in Charles-Eugène Gand’s 1870 notebook when it was owned by M. Deminet of Liege, Belgium. The next owner was the distinguished Belgian collector Paul Nothomb followed by a Belgian lawyer, Paul Donckier de Donciel, in 1913. After Hottinger, the present owner acquired it from the Rembert Wurlitzer firm in 1966.

This violin was always well regarded for its sound, which holds true today. It has, of course, the flexible qualities of any fine Stradivari, which are available to the player who takes the time to learn its nuances. We envision this instrument in the hands of a fine artist who can bring out all its capabilities. We welcome your serious inquiry.
