- Art News: Gilles’ Theory: Bombshell 2: Michelangelo used lifecasting. The find of the bust of Queen Nefertiti and many plaster casts of faces in the workshop of a fourteenth-century BC sculptor shows that since at least 1340 BC the faces of some sculptures have been derived from life or death masks. In 2002 the sculptor Nigel Konstam published a theory that was as significant in the history of sculpture as the Hockney-Falco theory was in the history of painting - Greek sculptors used lifecasting to cast whole figures from around 500 BC - but he was ignored. The work ‘Positionism’ supports Konstam’s theory and suggests Greek artists pointed from lifecasts of body parts even before 500BC. It explains why it’s likely that Michelangelo, like the Greeks and Romans, used lifecasting in the modelling process and transferred models to stone using pointing methods.
