    Cast Iron from Central Europe 1800-1850

    By Elisabeth Schmuttermeier & Derek E. Ostergard

    Prized for its strength and longevity, cast iron was also used in a remarkably diverse array of art and architecture projects by 19th-century European artists.

    Depicted in more than 300 images, the artworks here include a life-sized sculpture of Venus; hair combs and mesh handbags that anticipate art nouveau; Karl Friedrich Schinkel's ornate benches and chairs; a gilded Romanesque bust of Franz I of Austria; a bas-relief of Leonardo's Last Supper; and an inkstand replicating Napoleon's tomb, complete with a likeness of the French emperor enclosed.

    In addition to providing an overview of the vogue for cast iron, the text re-introduces many of the medium's foremost practitioners
