Heritage: Mapping the Practice and Profession of Sculpture in Britain and Ireland 1851-1951
The project delivers the results of the first comprehensive study of sculpture between the Great Exhibition of 1851, and the Festival of Britain in 1951. This was the first authoritative study of sculptors, related businesses and trades investigated in the context of creative collaborations, art infrastructures, professional networks and cultural geographies.
The HATII-developed database is the main outcome of the research and contains over 50,000 records about sculptural practice, connected by means over 380,000 relationships. In collaboration with History of Art at the University of Glasgow, external partners on Mapping Sculpture included the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Henry Moore Institute.
