Carlo Antonio Lorenzo Bergonzi II
(1757 – 1836)
It has been suggested that Carlo Antonio Lorenzo Bergonzi, the last and least-known violin maker of his family, was a teacher of Giovanni Battista Ceruti in the 1790s, but direct evidence of this relationship is lacking. His earliest known instrument dates from 1780, and he officially inherited the family business in 1804, though ...Read More he made guitars for much of his career. Carlo's violins and violas, which are extremely rare, are reminiscent of his brother Nicola's work, especially the varnish, although they are more idiosyncratic in character. Corners are abbreviated in length but pointed, waists are narrow, and scrolls are less deeply carved.
