Berlin's cast workshop was founded in 1819 and is the oldest and largest of its kind. Goethe and the brothers von Humboldt were already among its customers. To this day, this institution continues to sell hand-painted replicas of major sculptures which are defined by their artistry and workmanship. Since its foundation, the supply of casts has been steadily increased to 7,000 works.
Thanks to this ongoing and enormous supply, and the techniques of the manufactory, which were handed down from generation to generation, it has been possible to maintain the exceptionally high standard of Berlin's plaster cast tradition. Its repertoire already exceeds the expansive inventory of the Berlin State Museums. Not only masterpieces of these museums, such as the bust of Nefertiti and the Pricesses Luise and Friederike by Schadow are included, but also the best-known works from other important collections. The Laocoön Group and Rodin's Thinker are among these famous plaster casts.
