This paper explores issues surrounding the status attached to alabaster as a material of sculpture, drawing on key texts, and particularly addresses the low status of English alabasters. It includes new interpretations of Margaret of Austria's foundation at Brou and the tomb of Edward II at Gloucester, and new material on alabaster in Habsburg collections and on Pugin and alabaster.
