Emma Crichton-Miller

V&A Cast Court Victoria & Albert Museum, from 1st December

For years the Cast Courts at the V&A were regarded as an eccentric curiosity. But in 1873, when the museum first opened, lifesize plaster casts and electrotype copies were at the heart of its educational mission. Here, the public could wonder at marvels such as Trajan’s Column, cut in two, or Florence’s Gates of Paradise. Now the V&A unveils the final stage of its restoration, below, reinstating the original green-and-red paint schemes, repairing the lofty glazed barrel vault ceiling and reinvigorating our understanding of these objects.

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect’s December issue: Timothy Garton Ash and David Allen Green assess Brexit and ask whether it’s too late for things to change. Garton Ash explains how Brexit is just one part of a fracturing Europe and that it might not be too late for the UK’s situation—or that of the rest of Europe—to change. Green takes apart the “shambolic” way that Britain has approached Brexit and suggests a number of options that parliament should strongly consider if minister are to change their views. Elsewhere in the issue: Jo Glanville visits a rural GP surgery and exposes the crises that are played out day-in-day-out all over the country. Stephen Phelan suggests that Spain’s decision to exhume General Franco’s remains threatens to disturb more than his bones. Martin Rees writes about our dreams of understanding the entire universe—and how we may never be able to satisfy that desire.
