Multiplied: A Medieval Ivory and its Reproductions draws from the collections of The Courtauld and V&A to explore how different technologies of reproduction have shaped encounters with artworks since the 19th century.
Juxtaposing a spectacular Gothic ivory carving with multiple reproductions of it – from engravings, photographs and plaster casts to 3D prints and digital models – the display offers unparalleled opportunities to compare these technologies side-by-side.
What do they reveal or conceal about the original? How have they exposed otherwise inaccessible objects to study? And how can historic thinking about the ‘aura’ of the original inform current debates about new, super accurate reproductions?
