Description

One of The Strad’s most popular posters is now available with brand new artwork showing the 1741 ‘Kochanski’ Guarneri ‘del Gesù’ in all its glory. Now with actual-size photos depicting every nuance of the violin, this poster has been used by luthiers across the world as a model for their own instruments, thanks to the  measurements on the back*.

One of the few ‘del Gesù’ instruments dated 1741, the ‘Kochanski’ is exceptional due to its fine state of preservation and pristine varnish. The thickness of the coat is almost undisturbed by polishing, and its glistening texture emphasises the instrument’s freshness and natural condition.

‘Arguments rumble on as to whether Guarneri was insane, incompetent or a genius beyond our ken, but there is no denying that this violin is a wonderful artefact, thrilling to the eye and ear’ – John Dilworth in the October 1994 issue of The Strad.

*Please note the outline on the back of this poster is not to scale
