Rene Jacquemin Violin, Mirecourt, France, 1929

 

Born in 1886 in Mirecourt, France, Rene Jacquemin was a pupil of Audinot and worked for Mougenot-Jacquet-Gand and Caressa in Paris. After establishing an independent workshop in Mirecourt in 1919, Jacquemin was awarded the gold medal for violin making in 1926.

 

This beautiful French violin is a fine example of the Mirecourt school of violin making.  Crafted with a tight and evenly grained Spruce top plate, the violin features an exquisitely tight and even Flame Maple back plate with a Flame Maple neck and scroll.  The violin is finished with a relatively even orange-brown varnish with a gold undertone.  Fit with Rosewood pegs, tailpiece, and chin rest, the sound projection is bright, clear, and open.  A classic example of French artistry from the early 20th century of violin making.
