The Reception of Classical Art in Britain: An Oxford Story of Plaster Casts from the Antique
The first volume in the series Studies in the History of Collections, this work places archaeology, history of art, and British antiquarianism in the wider context of Europe's cultural heritage. The Story focuses on antique sculpture, the principal type of classical art known to artists, collectors and scholars from the Renaissance until the later nineteenth century. Includes a complete catalogue of the Ashmolean Museum's casts and a fascinating Chronological Chart.
