Hi all

How is the name Tourte pronounced? I hear sounding all over the place

Funny how inapt his name was for such an important person!...for sure he was no tart or dumbbell!
... and personally, good copies of his bows are my favourites.... for no reason other than I just like them!
Cheers, Mat

His two first names are rather resonant. And taking into account that the French place the last name before the first names, whenever he was mentioned, it always ended on a resonant note. And all is well that ends well.

cheers,
Crash Wm . . . . no resonance there, but it worked well for Tourte
