Antonio Stradivari 1724 VL Ludwig

This violin is named after Joseph Ludwig, a 19th century German violinist and former pupil of the celebrated Joseph Joachim, who chose to become a naturalised British citizen and established his residence in London. As Ernest N. Doring reported, Mr. J. Ludwig was highly regarded and ‘… became head of the violin department of the London Academy of Music succeeding Leopold Jansa about 1869–70.’
