Renaissance painters and sculptors of renown worked in ateliers with students, apprentices, and trained artists at hand. The walls of these workshops were filled with plaster casts of classic sculpture. Articulated wood models of the human form and of horses were in demand for everyday use. In our time, antique art models have always been in demand by cognoscenti for their esoteric presence. Sculpted in wood, elaborately jointed and movable, this highly expressive form makes a stunning showpiece.
Inspired by the Age of Sail, exploration, science, and cartography, and with a commitment to quality and intrigue, Authentic Models offers a collection with the character of authenticity. Made by artisans using time-honored skills, these pieces enrich a room, and the people in it, with a profound spirit of history and nostalgia.
