Anselmo Bellosio Violin


This violin, most likely made by Anselmo Bellosio (1743-1793) in Venice, was acquired by Animato Strings. These violin images show past repairs, including a new bass bar, fitted by A Eisenstein who had his workshop at 1547 Broadway, New York, according to this Magazin clip from 1944. We had to open the instrument to clean out accumulated dirt and to do minor repairs along the seams. It is now back together and impresses with its huge, saturated sound. It is available for sale.

About Anselmo Bellosio:
Anselmo Bellosio was born into a family of organ makers in 1743 and moved around 1763 to Venice. He started as a violin maker a little before 1770, most likely in the workshop of Giorgio Serafin. He took over Serafin’s workshop in 1777. Since this violin is dated 1768, it would be one of his first violins, showing a more 'rustic' character in terms of workmanship but it already produces a rich, deep sound.
Bellosio’s work shows his fine craftmanship. Charles Beare says that the great 18th Century Venetian school of violin making died when Bellosio died of pneumonia at the age of 50. His most famous pupil was Marco Antonio Cerin. His best instruments resemble those of his Master
