Aegidius Kloz

Born in 1733 in Mittenwald, where he died in 1805, Aegidius was one of the best makers of the very extensive Kloz family descended from Mathias (I), born in 1653. His father was Sebastian Kloz (1696-1775), from whom he inherited his style and manner of work, using the then popular high-arched Stainer form, with a well-regulated and rounded outline. There are also some elements of the Amati model in the treatment of the scroll, which usually resists the more extreme mannerisms of the later Kloz family. His varnish is quite variable, but includes some softer golden yellow finishes.
