Master model, 1844; Plaster, shellacked; 242 x 184 x 100 cm; Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, Gipsformerei, R-0263 (Original: ca. 1st century BCE, Roman copy at Vatican Museums, Rome)
The Greek Laocoön Group was discovered in Rome in 1506. The version shown here from 1844 includes Laocoön’s outstretched arm, which was added to the sculpture at a later stage. The original arm was in fact found in 1905; its copy is also in the collection of the Gipsformerei. The soot deeply ingrained in the surface of this master model is either due to the railway nearby the Gipsformerei or the fire at the premises towards the end of World War II.
