Originals, Copies and Fakes: The Visual Culture of Heritage
If you have a question about this talk, please contact T.S. Thompson.
How do great works of art become great? Or better, how do they become known? A “national heritage” consciousness cannot exist if “heritage” is not known to a majority of the population. The talks looks at how, during the nineteenth century, a visual culture of heritage was created through reproductive techniques. In particular, it will analyse the rise and fall of the Cast Museum in Europe.
