Searched out a plaster cast establishment located near Paris. Always fun to see old plaster collections, and to search out some gems for the studio.
Plaster casts are incredible resources that allow one to study the work of previous artists and learn from their accomplishments. Especially for sculptors, who are not allowed to copy in the museums due to the perceived threat of their materials- plaster casts are the next best thing to originals! Depending on the quality, they can retain much of the freshness and authentic marks of the original.
