Ludwig Neuner Violin, 1882, Mittenwald

Made by fourth generation Mittenwald violinmaker Ludwig Neuner, in the style of his famous grandfather’s work, Mathias Neuner, and labeled as such. With a pattern derived from Stainer, fairly high arched, long and narrow. The back is of two pieces of lightly flamed maple. Top is medium to wide grained spruce. Varnish is deep red-brown over a golden ground, with considerable contrast on the back.

Ludwig Neuner was born in Mittenwald in 1840. Training first with his father, Johann Neuner, he then apprenticed with makers in Vienna and Munich. He also was a professional cellist, which informed his work throughout his celebrated career. His greatest and most valuable experience, however, was gained during the six years he spent with J. B. Vuillaume in Paris, acquiring a multitude of skills, and even a collection of sketches and prints from the famous French master. Taking over the well-known family firm, Neuner & Horsteiner, Ludwig applied what he learned from Vuillaume, building it into a powerhouse with 200 workers producing up to 20,000 instruments a year, all at a very high level of quality. Continuing to make instruments personally for solo players based on the work of the Italian masters, his outstanding work was rewarded with medals at exhibitions worldwide.
