Description : The Gipsformerei (Replica Workshop) was founded in 1819 by King Frederick William III. In 1830 it was integrated into the Royal Prussian Museums, now the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin (National Museums in Berlin).
It was the workshop's task to document works which were not available in Berlin's museums. Replicas from domestic and external collections were made to create as comprehensive survey of the development of art as possible.
The forms and models, some of which are over 150 years old, often enable reproductions to be made of works which over the years have been eroded by environmental influences or suffered war damage.
The Replica Workshop was rehoused in 1891 in its own specially constructed building, and current home, close to Charlottenburg Palace.
