Antonio Stradivari (1644 - 1737)


Herbert K. Goodkind explains in his book „Violin Iconography Of Antonio Stradivari 1644-1737“ ( published in 1972):  the „total recorded production of Stradivarius family are 725 instruments“.

Today's estimates give an approximate number of almost 600 instruments still in existence. So far I could photograph 448 instruments. 
The common goal is to capture a comprehensive iconography of this master.
