Techniques in Serial Sculpture in the 19th Century

Rustin S. Levenson

An exhibition, “Metamorphoses in 19th-Century Sculpture,” was held at the Fogg Art Museum Nov. 19, 1975 – Jan. 7, 1976 and included works by Houdin, Barye, Carpeaux, Rodin, St. Gaudens and French in various stages of “metamorphosis.” The technical study of these pieces is an approach to the problematic area of serial sculpture. The study of chronology, technique, authenticity and originality is aided by surface examination, measurement and document research. Areas of future research are suggested.
