Mapping the Practice and Profession of Sculpture in Britain and Ireland 1851-1951 is the first authoritative study of sculptors, related businesses and trades investigated in the context of creative collaborations, art infrastructures, professional networks and cultural geographies. This database is the main outcome of the research and contains over 50,000 records about sculptural practice. The information has been entered so that the numerous connections between different areas of practice can be explored.
Glasgow University provided the overall management of the research programme and the main base for the project team. Staff were also based at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds.
