Camilli, Camillus

B. ca 1704, d. 1754, Mantua

A very refined and prolific maker. Acquired a Cremonese technique from Pietro Guarneri, (active in Mantua from ca. 1680 to 1720), and possibly another contemporary Mantuan maker, Antonio Zanotti, who may have been a pupil of Girolamo Amati II. His work is a combination of Amati and Guarneri styles, with a very neatly wrought head. His distinctive varnish is a clear orange-red, slightly chippier and harder than Cremonese finishes.
