Jean Joseph Martin - Quotes


"............about J.J. Martin. He worked for Vuillaume, in a style broadly reminiscent to that of the young Fran├žois Nicolas Voirin, and then in 1863 returned to Mirecourt to establish a business, run more or less as a collective, which unfortunately failed in 1880. His idea might have been to create a shop like that of Maire, but Maire had long since moved to the Capital since that was where his success was most likely. The businesses that did succeed in Mirecourt were the big industrial enterprises, the first and most famous being that of Jerome Thibouville-Lamy, which was followed a few years later by that of Laberte-Magnie.

Thibouville-Lamy arrived in town from Paris in 1861, married the daughter of a well-to-do businessman (and appended her name to his), and set up a giant enterprise that dominated the industry until the 1960s. This was true industrialization and mass-production, and if the quality was consistently excellent, the results were also consistently anonymous, and the average craftsman in Mirecourt ended up there as a life-long piece goods worker. Ironically, Martin had assisted in setting up the Thibouville-Lamy bowmaking workshop before devoting his efforts to his own doomed enterprise." - Philip Kass

"His best work (made during his tenure at Vuillaume shop) resembles that of F.N. Voirin, especially the bows with Vuillaume style frog(s)" - Gennady Filimonov

"We may regret that an honest and hardworking man, no doubt like other lesser known craftsmen, could have found it so difficult to make a living at that time. J.J. Martin was unfortunately more gifted as a maker than as a businessman." Millant-Raffin

Famous quotes containing the word quotes:

    Man is timid and apologetic; he is no longer upright; he dares not say “I think,” “I am,” but quotes some saint or sage.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I quote another man’s saying; unluckily, that other withdraws himself in the same way, and quotes me.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    A great man quotes bravely, and will not draw on his invention when his memory serves him with a word as good. What he quotes, he fills with his own voice and humour, and the whole cyclopedia of his table-talk is presently believed to be his own.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
