Catalogues of the Antique Vases

Title of the research project:
Comprehensive catalogues of the antique vases, as part of the Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum (CVA), a research project initiated by the Union Académique Internationale

Project executing museum:
Skulpturensammlung, Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden

Cooperative partner:
Bayerische Akademie der Wissenschaften, Munich

Outline:
One section of the Dresden antiquities collection is the collection of antique vases, which consists of nearly 2000 objects. After the publication in 2003 of the "CVA Dresden catalogue, Volume 1", which was devoted to the South Italian vases, three more volumes are now about to follow. This research is combined with the restoration of a selection of these vases. It is planned that the Dresden vases will be published in 5 volumes as part of the CVA project.
