This viola is one of the first to be made by Giovanni Battista Guadagnini during his ‘Turin period’, which saw the crafting of some of his finest works. His regular income from Count Cozio di Salabue gave him greater freedom to experiment, as evidenced by this small-size viola with high-set f-holes and enlarged centre bouts. With a back length of 400mm, it has wide, full arching and a brilliant yellow-orange varnish. The poster includes high-definition CT scans as well as full measurements.

‘The workmanship of the viola is of great quality and care: the archings are perfectly cut and finished, the interior appears to be in an excellent state of conservation, and it bears a number of the maker’s marks’ – Alberto Giordano in the January 2022 issue

**Subscribers to The Strad print edition will receive a free copy of this poster with the January issue – as part of a package that includes two free posters a year worth £39. More details on this offer and how to subscribe are on The Strad Shop**
