Catalog ID: A-VA/3832

Known as the "Viennese Stradivari," Austrian violin maker Franz Geissenhof (1753 - 1821) is considered the most important luthier of the early 19th century Viennese school. Born in Füssen, Germany, he moved to Vienna in 1772, where he studied with Johann Georg Thir, taking over his teacher's workshop in 1781. Geissenhof's instruments followed the style of Stainer and Thir up to around the turn of the century, when he began incorporating Stradivarian forms and characteristics.
