Catalogue of the 16th to 19th-century sculpture collection

Estimated timeframe: 2016–2025

Lead researcher: Juan Cruz Yábar

The sculpture collection of the Early Modern Era Department is quite diverse in terms of quality, dates and materials. Most of the sculptures, both large and small-format, are made of stone, wood, ivory, wax or bronze. The project will focus on monumental sculptures and complete their catalogue by investigating historical sources and preparing high-quality technical and graphic documentation.
