String Instruments
The art of the luthier is well represented in the Yale Collection, with a wide selection of examples from the Italian, German, French and English schools of the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.  Important examples from the Steinert and Skinner Collections as well as individual donations are set in the context of the extensive Emil Herrmann Collection of string instruments presented to the University by Hugh W. Long in 1962. Most of the violin-family instruments are in playing condition as are representative examples of the viol and plucked-string families.
