Gigapan EPIC Pro
In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, cast-plaster fragments of classical and historical buildings were collected so working-class people and students who couldn’t afford to travel would be able to be able to see some of the world's greatest art and architectural masterpieces.
Many American institutions, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, created their own cast-plaster collections. In 2005, the Met’s collection was dispersed to a handful of academic institutions, including the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture. Some of the casts are now on permanent display in the Bond Hall Gallery thanks to the generous support of Matt and Joyce Walsh.
They are shown here via Gigapan technology which allows one to zoom in to see the collection in great detail. These casts represent architectural and artistic masterpieces of the Classical world through the Renaissance. Visitors from all over the world once visited the Met’s Great Hall to draw and learn from the collection. Today, students, faculty, and visitors to the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture do the same.
