  • Thorvaldsens Museum - Thorvaldsensmuseum
    a colourful setting for Thorvaldsen s art inspired by the patterns and the colours found in the excavations in the ancient cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum in Italy among other places Bindesbøll had lived in Rome in the 1830s and had become a close friend of Thorvaldsen Bindesbøll was in Rome among other reasons to draw up proposals for a future Thorvaldsen Museum in Copenhagen He often visited Thorvaldsen and was inspired there by the high diagonal fall of light into the sculptor s workshops He took this as his own and along with the bright colours it became characteristic of the lighting in Thorvaldsens Museum When the light floods in from the museum s high studio like windows it creates a variety of moods for the sculptures and the many colours of the architecture depending on the time of day or the season when you visit the museum This makes each visit to the museum something special Sit on the benches in the small rooms and enjoy the atmosphere or take a rest in the courtyard of the museum where nineteenth century artists have created a peaceful framework around Thorvaldsen s grave with their decorations of the walls with plants and flowers from north and south Here you can lean back between the painted palms and laurels and on a summer s day you can dream your way to Italy where Thorvaldsen lived for forty years Denmark s first museum building Thorvaldsens Museum was built in 1839 1848 and was Denmark s first museum building While Thorvaldsen became a famous artist in Rome a wish grew up back in Denmark to build a museum for him Thorvaldsen bequeathed all that he owned to the city of Copenhagen and contributions to a country wide collection from King Frederik VI and

  • The Sonne frieze - Thorvaldsensmuseum
    moment of going ashore the moment when Thorvaldsen finally sets foot on Danish soil again On the side facing Christiansborg on the other hand there is a picture of the difficult task of transporting Thorvaldsen s works from the Rota right into the museum itself huge packing cases and packages are being manhandled down from the ship and gigantic statues are being lugged about with great difficulty Who is seen on the frieze The frieze shows some of the leading figures in the artistic and political life of the day not least those who played a part in establishing Thorvaldsens Museum both in 1838 when the scene is set and also in the second half of the 1840s when the frieze was created Historical inaccuracies and artistic licence There is a host of historical inaccuracies and examples of artistic licence in the frieze Sonne himself is seen sitting in a boat beside his brother the engraver Edward Sonne despite the fact that neither of them was there to witness the actual reception of Thorvaldsen on 17 September 1838 Sonne himself was still in Rome at that time Similarly Baroness Christine Stampe and her family occupy an entire boat in the arrival scene but in reality they were not in town on the date in question The Stampe family however played an important part in Thorvaldsen s last six years in Denmark and so they cannot be omitted from the gallery of personalities in the frieze And among those whom the frieze portrays as having been present at the event there are more examples of persons who were not there The art historian N L Høyen for instance and the painters Jørgen Roed Constantin Hansen Georg Hilker Christen Købke and F C Krohn all of whom can be seen in the artists boat were all absent from the welcoming ceremony for Thorvaldsen on this important day In the boat containing representatives of Copenhagen municipality which is also included in the scene facing the canal the politicians L N Hvidt and Orla Lehmann are right at the very front although they had not yet become members of the city council in 1838 On the other hand they had been elected by 1846 48 when the frieze was created by which time they both were both playing an important part in the political efforts to introduce a democratic form of government in Denmark Poets and artists There are more familiar faces to be seen in the crowd depicted in the frieze Hans Christian Andersen is leaning against the mast in the poets boat and waving his hat Andersen knew Thorvaldsen from his sojourns in Rome where as a member of the Danish artists colony he had visited the sculptor and become a close friend Also in the poets boat we can see N F S Grundtvig and Adam Oehlenschläger who often appeared among the circle of friends and acquaintances surrounding Thorvaldsen during his final years both in Copenhagen and at the country mansion
