  • À la Grecque - Thorvaldsensmuseum
    became one of the most fertile strands of Danish modernism It continued with sculptors such as Anne Marie Carl Nielsen Niels Larsen Stevns and Svend Rathsack and made its impact in earnest in the 1920s when artists like Astrid Noack Adam Fischer and Henrik Starcke engaged in dialogue with the Archaic style Later Axel Salto and Svend Wiig Hansen followed suit Several of the sculptors represented in the exhibition are not so well known today for example Adam Fischer and Henrik Starcke but their works deserve renewed attention from both an artistic and arthistorical perspective Others like Astrid Noack made some of the most iconic works in Danish art The range of expression from Niels Skovgaard to Svend Wiig Hansen is wide but it is quite clear that the inspiration from the Archaic art of antiquity links them together The exhibition was built up as a series of dialogues such that the modern works were shown together with the ancient works which had been borrowed from the Royal Collection of Plaster Casts This brought out obvious but also surprising connections and meanings that had never before been presented as a totality in an exhibition The Continued Influence of Antiquity Bertel Thorvaldsen became one of the most important artists of Neoclassicism a movement that gave the formal idioms of antiquity and ancient culture a presence and an impact in his time It is thus also an important mission for Thorvaldsens Museum constantly to investigate and communicate how the art and culture of antiquity have influenced later art In 2002 the museum showed the exhibition Fatique Danish Sculptural Art 1850 1900 which presented a wide segment of the sculptural works of the half century after the death of Thorvaldsen in 1844 In this period the memory of Thorvaldsen himself and respect for

  • Justitio and the witnesses - Thorvaldsensmuseum
    day and with which we are confronted through the work in this building In this way the reliefs will form part of the overall objective of the Courthouse which is to create a balanced relationship between order and disorder and to attempt to fit the human drama often violent in itself into the social framework And I want to show that life outside the walls of the Courthouse is vibrant violent and relevant to each individual entering the building and that justice is a complicated concept with which that life is confronted About the Exhibition Thorvaldsens Museum was exhibiting the sketches for the major decoration in the City Hall and Courthouse along with a number of more recent works by Jørgen Haugen Sørensen concerned with the same violent theme The clay models and paper sketches along with diary notes showed the large number of sculptural models and sketches made before the works acquired their final shape and revealed the chain of thought fundamental to both content and expression Jørgen Haugen Sørensen Den underste himmel eller som at holde havet tilbage med en kost 2002 Tilhører SMK Jørgen Haugen Sørensen at Thorvaldsens Museum One of the reasons why Thorvaldsens Museum was mounting this exhibition is that Jørgen Haugen Sørensen is one of the most important of Danish sculptors And as the museum dedicated to the most famous sculptor Danish sculptor of all time Bertel Thorvaldsen it also wished to turn the spotlight on important contemporary sculpture But in addition to this Thorvaldsen was in 1806 entrusted by the architect responsible for the building C F Hansen with the task of creating sculptures and reliefs for the City Hall and Courthouse He made several sketches for reliefs intended to adorn the façade of the Courthouse but the project was never realised The

  • Graphics - Thorvaldsensmuseum
    exhibition In Black and White Thorvaldsen s Collection of Graphics provided a new perspective on Thorvaldsen s manner of working For at a time when photography had still not been invented graphics served as visual memory The black and white art that especially emerged in the form of etchings or copper plate engravings culminated in the 18th century in an array of reproductions of works by other artists but they had also constituted an independent form of art over the centuries And in the service of inspiration and enlightenment graphics became an effective visual medium in making it possible to print a large number of copies of the same work from a single plate Bartolomeo Pinelli 1781 1835 Bartolomeo Pinelli standing before Roma among the ruins of the Forum Romanum 1818 Life Chaos and Love A few art museums in Denmark possess large collections of graphics but the special feature about Thorvaldsen s collection is that it served as his personal picture universe and reflects his taste and interests and that is was a visual necessity for his artistic imagination Thorvaldsen collected a large number of works expressive of powerful feelings and themes such as love passion and drama In this exhibition you were yourself able to go hunting in Jacques Callot s 1592 1635 detailed graphic based on Dante s great poem The Divine Comedy you will search long before finding the likes of the chaos and terror in the pictures illustrating Hell as it is described in the poem Or you could take a look at the exhibition s gallery with all those images of the different faces of love passion jealousy and longing Cupid the god of love appears in over 10 of Thorvaldsen s own works Roman Architecture and Street Life Graphics by the great Venetian
