About the publication
This publication documents the importance of painted copies and plaster casts of key monuments in the history of art as didactic tools during the nineteenth century.  The founding of Vassar College in the early 1860s and its interest in teaching the visual arts was well timed to make use of this method of teaching.  Vassar Professor Jacqueline Musacchio charts this fascinating early history in her informative gallery guide.
