Annibale Fagnola, Turin 1906

1866 – 1939

Annibale Fagnola possesses the rare quality of instilling his personality into his work. This violin is a copy of a Pressenda and within the confines of copy one can see Fagnola’s style. Individuality in violin making is abundant, personality is rare, and in Fagnola’s work both are evident.

This violin is an early example and shows his talent as a copyist but also an ability to get inside Pressenda’s mind and philosophy.

It has a lightly crackled varnish and is in excellent condition.
