Cataloguing the 16th - 19th century sculpture collection

2016-2020

Supervisor: Juan Cruz Yábar

The Modern Era department’s sculpture collection is extremely diverse in quality, age and materials. Most of the pieces, whether small or large in scale, are made of stone, wood, ivory, wax, or bronze. The project will centre on monumental sculpture and will complete the catalogue with research on historical sources and the production of high quality technical and graphic documentation.
