The Renewed Guitar – the instrument’s evolution seen through period pictures (1775-1925)

La Guitare renouvelée – l’évolution de l’instrument vue à travers les images d’époque (1775-1925)

The Renewed Guitar retraces a high period in the history of the guitar – exclusively through period pictures. A period which starts in the late 18th century with a revolutionary idea: the mere switch from double to single strings, which, incidental as it

may appear, renewed the guitar and propelled it into modernity. It ends in the early 20th century, when the appearance of electromagnetic transducers opened completely new possibilities in the making of musical instruments. The renewed guitar had just reached maturity, and a cycle of 150 years come to completion. This abundant iconographic material is divided in eight chapters, each treating a specific topic, including the portrait genre, the feminine and the masculine guitar, satire and caricature, playing technique or the guitar-related business.

A book by Erik Pierre Hofmann and Stefan Hackl.
