Born at Mattaincourt (near Mirecourt), 1885. Apprenticed in his 13th year to Chevrier. Worked with the principal Parisian makers, and with G. Mougenot at Brussels, whose business he acquired, 1910. Won gold medals and diplomas at various Exhibitions.
All the refined technicalities of superior workmanship adorn his instruments. Red varnish further enhances it. Rather rich tone; found its way into great popularity with Belgian players.
Similar remarks apply to his ’cellos.
