Description

The Chimei Museum in Taiwan contains possibly the largest collection of bowed stringed instruments in the world. Instrument and bow makers from across the globe have travelled to the Museum to examine its treasures: more than 1000 violin makers are represented, along with over 300 bow makers. 

The Calendar includes the 1707 ‘Dushkin’ Stradivari, which represents the starting point of the whole collection: it was the $1m purchase of this violin in 1990, by the billionaire Shi Wen-Long, that kick-started the enterprise. Thirty years later, the collection comprises some 1,370 violins, with 260 of them out on loan at any one time.
