AbstractFrom the end of the eighteenth century to the mid-nineteenth century, the city of Barcelona was the setting for the circulation, production and exhibition of wax models. Some private cabinets of curiosities were turned into museums, opening up to new audiences and advertising their collections in city guides and the periodical press. At the end of the period, and in a changing urban geographical context, different models were exhibited with artistic, religious, medical and journalistic objectives, even though they were often made by the same artists. Some of these wax models were created as part of the systematic development of medical collections with didactic aims. In this context, wax modellers such as J. Chiappi and S. Malagarriga appeared and disappeared from the city, leaving material and documentary traces, but also some unanswered questions.
