Provenance
Vuillaume owned the 1656 'Yousoupoff' Amati from 1855 to 1868 and made a number of copies. He is reputed to have sold the violin to Prince Nikolaj Yousoupoff, a pupil of Henri Vieuxtemps, but according to Emil Herrmann, Vuillaume sold the violin to Liodor Panajeff and it was later that Yousoupoff acquired it.

The name Yousoupoff is best known for the involvement of Felix Yousoupoff in the assassination of Rasputin, which occurred in the Yousoupoff's palace in St. Petersburg in 1916.
