A Violin by Prosper Gérard Grandjon “Père”

Violin by Grandjon ‘Père’, Mirecourt, c.1815

This violin portrays the early work of Prosper Gérard Grandjon with excellence. It consolidates intriguing aspects of his style and approach to the making, which is very personal and spontaneous in its way, still very attached to the local tradition of the Mirecourt violin-making scenario. If we consider the productive career of the maker, this particular violin, despite being made in the first years of its prolific career, can easily be placed among its most worth-noticing pieces. For us, the instrument highlights are the strong edges and purfling that beautifully frame the instrument body. More

      Full description

      This violin portrays the early work of Prosper Gérard Grandjon with excellence. It consolidates intriguing aspects of his style and approach to the making, which is very personal and spontaneous in its way, still very attached to the local tradition of the Mirecourt violin-making scenario. If we consider the productive career of the maker, this particular violin, despite being made in the first years of its prolific career, can easily be placed among its most worth-noticing pieces. The bold wide model reflects the continuous search for the optimal acoustic result, stretching the possibilities to their limits to achieve such a result. This later became a pattern often used by French makers in general, especially by his descendants. The top is made of fine quality and very narrow and consistent grain Spruce, providing the violin with an excellent colorful tone. The back, ribs, and head are made of lovely light-flamed maple, all covered by a red-brown transparent varnish.

      Prosper Gérard Grandjon “Père”

      Grandjon Père was a distinguished French violin maker of the 19th century. He was the first of a lineage of violin makers and likely learned the craft from his family circle or apprenticed under established makers in Mirecourt. His contributions to French violin making are recognized and his instruments continue to be sought after by musicians and enthusiasts alike.Learn more
