The fortunes of art in alabaster: a historiographical analysis.
In: From Major to Minor: the minor arts and their current status in art history, March 2011, Princeton, USA.
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.
