Famous case # 3: Jean Dubuffet sculpture using epoxy resins
Epoxy adhesives were developed in the 1940s (see the Science section).
Initial applications were high-performance gluing for military vehicles, including aircraft.
At the end of the sixties, art also seized epoxy resins *.
Some artists like Jean Dubuffet have made it one of their main working material to make sculptures of various dimensions, some of monumental size such as those of the Enamel Garden in the Netherlands.
(* Although the use has been to call them epoxy, the correct term is polyepoxide resin)
