An old man in his workshop closely examining a Stradivarius violin. The 'Morning Advertiser' announced: ''The Old 'Strad.' An important print from the celebrated picture of a connoisseur inspecting a genuine Stradivarius, by Lionel J. Cowen, exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1886. The picture has been reproduced in a most admirable manner, in photogravure, by the Swan Electric Engraving Company, of London, and cannot fail to have a ready sale amongst violinists, musical instrument makers, and all who take an interest in thoroughly genuine works of art'.
