A Violin by Gennaro Gagliano 

Naples, c.1740

A Violin by Gennaro Gagliano

Naples, c.1740

An unusually fine, bold example of one of the most important South Italian makers. Its arching is notably full and strong, and is modelled on the grand pattern. In addition it has particularly well-preserved varnish. It is not only a fine player’s instrument, but also an excellent collector’s piece.
