According to cave drawings found in France, stringed instruments have been around since 13,000 BC. The musical devices evolved in shape and sound until suddenly in around 1500 AD, the violin appeared. Today the violin is a classic instrument heard across our musical landscapes. Gracing innumerable songs, soundtracks, and stages throughout time, this curation showcases the various ways artists depict this elegant device on canvas.
