    Product Description

    Rene Quenoil Violin 1947

    Rene Quenoil was born in 1921 and worked mainly from Paris.  He came from a family of Mirecourt luthiers. 

    His father Victor was born in Mirecourt in 1889 and studied his craft under Deblaye.  His instruments were modelled on the traditional Italian school and are known for their good workmanship and a mature warm tone.

    His uncle Charles was born in Mirecourt in 1878 and his Italian replicas were made in the grand tradition to a standard seldom achieved by his contemporaries.

    Rene was a pupil of his father and also trained with Amédée Dieudonné in Mirecourt. Rene was subsequently employed by Marcel Vatelot and Emile Français (of Caressa & Français).

    Quenoil established his own workshop in the Boulevard de Clichy.  He eventually took over the workshop of J Fritsch in 1976. Quenoil’s assistants included Roland Terrier.

    Rene won diplomas at the Hague in 1949 for a violin and a cello. In 1957 Poznan in Poland became the host of an International violin-making competition.  In that year, 130 instruments were submitted.  Out of these 130,  instruments crafted by Quinoil resulted in him being designated a laureate of this prestigious competition.  He also was awarded medals at the Paris competition of 1965.

    Rene Quinoil was made a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Art et des Lettres in 1982.  This order was created by the French government to recognise individuals who have made significant contributions to the arts, literature or the propagation of these fields.
