Marble on Paper. Early-18th-Century Italian Collections of Antiquities in the Light of Richard Topham’s Drawings Collection at Eton College (Completion of the Project)


Work on the drawings after the antique from the Topham Collection is being continued in 2019. The completion of the project is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation.

The digitisation of over 1.850 sheets was finished in October 2018, and data entry on the respective document records is expected to be concluded by April 2019. In contrast, the identification of the antique monuments dcoumented by the drawings is still going on, just as the creation of the respective monument records. It is planned to conclude these tasks by the end of November 2019. However, the step-by-step public release of the records will begin earlier this year after an internal revision process.
