Andrea Castagneri

Born in Turin in 1696, Andrea Castagneri moved to Paris in 1720 and became a leading maker and dealer there, retaining a very personal and delicate style of workmanship closely related to his contemporary in Turin, Giovanni Celoniato. His style is very Amatese, finely fashioned and beautifully varnished, generally in pale golden tones, and quite distinct from other makers of the pre-revolutionary ‘Vieux Paris’ school.
