His career is marked by a relentless drive to construct the perfect instrument, combining the classical Italian tradition with contemporary French style.
After working in the heart of Paris for 30 years, Vuillaume had fashioned a flourishing business through careful attention to clients of all incomes, brilliant innovations in the craft, and a unique synthesis of contemporary French elegance inspired by the old Italian masterworks of Stradivarius and Guarneri del Gesu.
His customers included great musicians like Piatti, Servais, and Paganini, great pedagogues like De Beriot, Savart, and Dancla, and nobility from Spain to Russia.
The territory of Gobustan is cut up with numerous, sometimes rather deep ravines (in Azerbaijani: ).
That is a suggested origin of the Gobustan geographical name.
