A number of people have provided assistance with the project. On the Research Forum side we would especially like to thank Caroline Arscott, while on the Gallery side the registrar, Julia Blanks, has been particularly helpful. Joff Whitten and Ron Cobb were both instrumental in various aspects of setting up the display. We would also like to acknowledge the help of Eva Bensasson and Kerstin Glasow in setting up the webpage. Finally, we would like to thank the Curator of Sculpture & Decorative Arts at The Courtauld, Alexandra Gerstein, who has supervised and guided the project throughout, and without whose help the display would not have been possible.
