AN INDEPENDANT RESEARCH - by Marianne dumas 

upside down...

"Some move the bow as is customary on the viola da gamba, that is,  instead of a down-stroke from left to right for the principal notes, they make an up-stroke from right to left, beginning from the tip of the bow."

J. J. Quantz about cellists, Berlin, 1752 excerpt from "The art of playing the flute".
