By Cecie Stainer

A bow maker in Paris; b. 1760, at Nancy; d. 1832, at Paris. In 1783 he had been settled for several years in rue de la Coutellerie; he had moved to rue de la Verrerie by 1785, and to 30, rue de la Juiverie by 1788, there he probably remained till his death. He closely copied the bows of François Tourte, and his work has a well-merited reputation. In the Paris Conservatoire Collection is a bow of his. His son, Joseph Rene, was also a bow maker.
