Details
Conservation By Design supplied 23 showcases for this unique exhibition, the first time a show dedicated to the celebration of the life and work of Antonio Stradivari had been held in Britain. The exhibition brought together 21 of Stradivari’s most important, well-preserved instruments to showcase the brilliance of his craft. Displays included works from 1700-1725, considered to be his golden period, in which his instruments became the classic models on which later violins and cellos were based.
