Henry Moore Institute Library Display - Sculpture in the Time of Cholera
Sculpture in the Time of Cholera: William Calder Marshall in Rome 1836-8 is a new library display at the Henry Moore Institute, curated by York/Tate CDA student Amy Harris. The display opened on 28 July and is free to view in the HMI Library until 24 September 2017.
Scottish sculptor William Calder Marshall (1813-94) spent 18 months in Rome from 1836-38, coinciding with a cholera epidemic that killed more than 10,000 people in the city in just four weeks. This display brings together documents pertaining to Marshall’s time in Rome, including letters, pamphlets and his well-used passport. For more information, visit the HMI website.
