Thorvaldsen's Museum opened in central Copenhagen in 1848

Thorvaldsen's Museum opened in central Copenhagen in 1848. The great Danish sculptor, Bertel Thorvaldsen, had arranged to donate his own works of art and his collections to the city, provided that a museum be built for this purpose. In this learned and lively study of the museum and its frieze, John Henderson shows how the frieze takes inspiration from classical models, including the Parthenon and Roman monuments, in delivering the finest neoclassical art, and its cosmopolitan European culture, to the attention of a newly modernized public.

Thorvaldsen's Museum opened in central Copenhagen in 1848. The great Danish sculptor, Bertel Thorvaldsen, had arranged to donate his own works of art and his collections to the city, provided that a museum be built for this purpose. The museum was decorated with a colorful frieze depicting the triumphant arrival of Thorvaldsen and his magnificent works of art in Copenhagen from the artist's studio in Rome. The dramatic frieze, designed by the Danish artist Jørgen Sonne, made a big splash at the time, and has captivated visitors ever since. In this learned and lively study of the museum and its frieze, John Henderson shows how the frieze takes inspiration from classical models, including the Parthenon and Roman monuments, in delivering the finest neoclassical art, and its cosmopolitan European culture, to the attention of a newly modernized public. This beautifully illustrated book breaks new ground in Danish art history, bringing an important and unique Danish work of art to an international audience.
