Violins in Museums around the world

Recommended Posts

thanks for the latest additions.

 

Omobono: I've added 

  • Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts, Zagreb 
  • Conservatorio di Musica San Pietro a Majella, Naples 
  • Escola de Música do Conservatório Nacional, Lisbon

 

The The Palace of The Legion of Honor, still lists the Heifetz del Gesu as 'not displayed', but I included the instrument link you provided in the description.

 

The MET entry is now updated with BassClef's pictures here: http://stephenchurchill.ca/resources/1142-2/the-metropolitan-museum-of-art/

The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan has some nice violins.  I saw them years ago and the museum has lots of other things.  I would give it one star.

Thanks Dwight, I'll add that.  Henry Ford's estate has quite a selection of impressive instruments, unfortunately it appears most are not on display.  One is actually on-loan to Cremona!

Stephen, There doesn't appear to be a South American contribution on your list as yet.

What about this one?

They claim instruments by Guarneri, Rugeri, Guadagnini, Santo Serafin, Gobetti and Cappa, as well as more contemporary makers.

Hi Omobono,  Thanks for the link, yes I'd like to get more museums from all over the world.  There's no doubt you're in luck if you live in Europe but what about the rest of us :)

I'll add this entry shortly.

 

Thanks

Stephen
