What makes Stradivarius violins so special? Made by Antonio Stradivari and his family, these instruments are among the most valuable violins in the world, highly regarded by performers and audiences. Take a look at pictures from the Stradivarius exhibition at Oxford's Ashmolean museum, uncovering the beauty of these musical works of art.
It's not just Antonio Stradivari who's responsible for creating the best violins in the world. His son, Francesco Stradivari, was also a talented luthier whose instruments are highly regarded - if not slightly eclipsed by his father's superior models. This is one of the violins made by him in 1734.
