      Scottish Society for Art History Tour of the Sculpture Workshop and Collections at Edinburgh College of Art, University of Edinburgh

      Tour of the Sculpture Workshop and Collections at Edinburgh College of Art, University of Edinburgh Join us for a tour of the sculpture studios and the collections at the Edinburgh College of Art. We will have the opportunity to see ECA's cast collection, which was acquired in the early nineteenth century to teach classical art to student of the Trustees Academy, Edinburgh. Casts were commissioned from original sculpture in Rome, Florence and Paris, and importantly from the Parthenon Marbles in the British Museum.  It includes casts donated by Lord Elgin from his own Athenian collection. The collection ranks with the finest of the European neoclassical casts collection. Please note: the group will assemble at the main reception in the Edinburgh College of Art Main Building, through the pend from Lauriston Place.
