In this gallery we feature ‘thematic instruments’ by Brazilian luthier Saulo Dantas Barreto, made for both musicians and art collectors.

The violins are: 

Violino Gustave Doré, Violino Roberta Moroni, Violino Princess Isabel, Viola Klimt, Violino Van Gogh and Violino Caravaggio.

Saulo Dantas-Barreto graduated from the A. Stradivari International Violin Making Institute (Cremona, Italy) in 1992, where he was trained by Giorgio Cè (violin making) and Piero Ferraroni (sculpture), and earned a Bachelor of Music (violin) from the Federal University of Paraíba (Brazil).
