Polish Violin in the Musée de la Musique in Paris

A new bilingual book has been published:

‘Polish Violin in the Musée de la Musique in Paris’ by Jan Bartoś.

This Polish-English publication is a monograph of an instrument in the collection of the Musée de la Musique in Paris, which for years was considered to be of unknown origin. Jan Bartoś’s research confirmed the Polish origin of the violin and allowed for its attribution to be established.

The publication contains biographical information about the old Polish masters, a complete description of the instrument with its exact dimensions, a description of the process and results of the research carried out, and extensive photographic documentation. The book is accompanied by a poster of the instrument with photographs in their original size.

The book also includes forewords written by Jean-Philippe Échard, the curator of the string instruments collection of the Musée de la Musique Paris, and Honorata Stalmierska, the Head of the Department of Artistic Violin Making at the Academy of Music in Poznan and the President of the Włodzimierz Kamiński and Helena Harajda Art of Violin Making Foundation.
