From a Mirecourt violin making family, Charles Adolphe (1820-1858) was the younger brother of Charles (1807-1860). He worked for J.B. Vuillaume before establishing his own business in 1844, initially in the Galerie Vivienne, from 1852 in rue Croix des Petits Champs and lastly in the Rue Princess. He committed suicide in 1858. His work is of excellent quality, and usually consists of very well observed copies of Classical masters, often with a deep red-brown varnish.
