The Wellcome Collection commisioned two tactile interpretations of artworks from the Wellcome Gallery in London.
This is 'Portrait of Dr Gatchet', Vincent Van Gogh, 1890
The second interpretation is a detail from the painting ‘St Elizabeth Visiting the Sick’, Adam Elsheimer c 1598. Images can be found here.
Both pieces are cast in resin with a bronze finish to combine the characteristics of fine detail with durability. They are light in weight to ease operation of the storage drawers in which they are displayed.
