JOSEPH JOACHIM - VIOLINIST

Original 5Ē x 7Ē Fratelli Vianelli of Venice cabinet photograph of the legendary violinist in his 40ís, c .1870ís.

 

Joachimís (1831-1907) main link to Venice was his Gaurneri 1747 violin.† That said, while we expect Joachim probably played concerts in Venice during his lifetime, we could not find a single record of his playing a concert in the city at the time this photograph was taken.† Based on other photographs, this image dates to the 1870ís whilst Joachim was in his 40ís. Irregardless it is an original and uncommon photograph of the violinist.

 

The Vianelli brothers, Giuseppe and Luigi were the photographers to the wealthy in Venice.† As such, they took photographs of a wide variety of composers, musicians and singers who came to town from the 1860ís through the 1890ís.†† Their images can be seen in the photography collections of some of the most important museums, archives and libraries in the world, from the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, to the National Portrait Gallery in London.
