Francois Louis Pique, Paris, 1810

 

Along with Nicolas Lupot, Francois Louis Pique led the way toward the rediscovery of Antonio Stradivari’s violin model in Paris at the start of the 19th century. As such, the “Vieux-Paris” school, which had favored the models of Stainer and Amati, faded away, and a period of very high quality violin making followed based first on the Stradivari model and later on the Guarneri “del Gesù” model.

This excellent example is typical of Pique’s best work. It is made with especially attractive maple and covered with a lush red varnish. It is in excellent condition and has a rich and robust sound. It would be a suitable companion to any serious artist.
