Plaster Casts

(900 plaster casts of classical sculpture in the Ashmolean Museum)

The Plaster Casts database began as part of an EU R&D project in telecommunications in 1994 and was updated until 2000. The database depends on Kurtz's Reception of Classical Art in Britain, an Oxford story of plaster casts from the antique (2000). The chronological catalogue of acquisitions published in this book is fully illustrated on the Beazley website.
