Austrian-born violin virtuoso Erika Morini was born on this day in 1904 – 113 years ago.
Tragically her 1727 ‘Davidoff’ Stradivarius and a number of precious paintings, letters and scores were stolen from her New York City apartment in 1995 – just days before her death.
Today the crime remains unsolved and is listed on the American Federal Bureau of Investigation‘s ‘Top Ten Art Thefts’.
