This undated photo provided by Sotheby's shows a detail of a rare 1719 Stradivarius viola that is expected to sell for more than $45 million in a private sale by Sotheby's. Only 10 Stradivari violas are known to have survived. This one, called "the Macdonald," was acquired in 1964 by the late Peter Schidlof of the Amadeus Quartet. His estate is now selling it.
