The world’s greatest museum of art and design

Bronze is an alloy of copper and tin, and often also contains lead or zinc. It is strong and durable but can also capture the fine, complex detail within a casting mould. The V&A holds in its collections a large number of bronze objects, including a group of sculptures donated by Auguste Rodin.
