The Heiresses Loved Strads
Regular price $0.00
The Guilded Age served as a rich chapter in the history of great instruments, especially for those owned by the Clark family. According to Christopher Reuning of Reuning & Son Violins in Boston, over the course of time, the Clarks owned eight Strads, including the “Kreutzer,” and four Nicolò Amatis. Here you’ll find the story of American robber baron William A. Clark, his wife Anna, and his daughter Huguette, who died a recluse in a New York hospital—and how their fortunes played a part in the lives of the great instruments they possessed.
