The Plaster-cast Workshop
The Plaster Cast Workshop was established in the nineteenth century during the reign of King Leopold II. It houses a collection of more than 4000 molds of works of art dating from prehistoric times to the eighteenth century.
In reproducing these works of art, the workshop’s specialized craftsmen employ traditional techniques in both the casting and the patination.

Purchasing a plaster cast?
By offering casts for sale, the workshop makes sculptural art accessible for schools, academies, scientific and commercial institutions or amateurs in Belgium and abroad. The larger examples, such as busts, full-length statues, reliefs, etc. have to be ordered, but there is always a little stock of smaller examples. An order can be placed on the spot, by phone or by e-mail.
By clicking on the link you can have a look in the catalogue by now.
Some of the casts are on sale in the Museum shop.
