Reproductions in Museums

April 13th, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

I like it that the Victoria and Albert Museum and the London Natural History Museum both have lots of items that are reproductions rather than originals. At the VA there is a room of medieval sculpture reproductions.


At the Natural History Museum there are lots of casts of fossils from other collections. I think of the marine animal fossil hall in particular– the pleiosaurs and mosasaurs.

Banfield in his book The Maculate Muse called for this.
