Plaster Casts

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

The Plaster Casts database is a legacy database created as part of an EU R&D project in telecommunications in 1994. It 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 here.

For further information on the Cast Gallery please visit the Ashmolean Museum website or see R.R.R. Smith and R. Frederiksen, The Cast Gallery of the Ashmolean Museum: Catalogue of Plaster Casts of Greek and Roman Sculpture (Oxford, 2013).
