    living in Rome was commissioned to create a series of central works for Amalienborg Christiansborg Palace and Roskilde Cathedral the burial church of the Danish kings Thorvaldsen s Christian IV monument at Roskilde Cathedral Both King Frederik VI 1768 1839 and King Christian VIII 1786 1848 and their families were portrayed by Thorvaldsen and the many royal busts can be seen in an impressive display in the exhibition The kings played an active role in the early history of Thorvaldsens Museum and it was royal frigates that brought Thorvaldsen s works home from Rome to the museum Frederik VI donated the site on which Thorvaldsens Museum was built And what a royal gift it was that the site was in the middle of the island of Slotsholmen so close to Christiansborg Palace in the royal city of Copenhagen Not everyone however was equally thrilled with the location close to the royal palace for Thorvaldsens Museum was also meant to be a powerful symbol of the new democratic currents in the country The monarchy of our own time has loaned works to the exhibition including a relatively unknown portrait of Thorvaldsen painted by Samuel Morse the inventor of the Morse Code Morse was originally a painter and portrayed Thorvaldsen in Rome in 1831 Thorvaldsen Denmark It is mainly the Copenhagen related part of Thorvaldsen s wider European oeuvre that the exhibition thematizes through the many works from Christiansborg Palace But the exhibition is not only about the capital It is about Thorvaldsen and Denmark about the Danish works that are also to be found in other places than at Thorvaldsens Museum The Christian IV monument in Roskilde Cathedral the Frederik VI monument on Skanderborg Castle Hill and the Royal Grove in Thisted The exhibition room built up as the studio at

  • Education - Thorvaldsensmuseum
    as youth education and adult language programmes Dialogue based teaching The moment you walk in the door of Thorvaldsens Museum you also enter a quite unique uni verse centring on Thorvaldsen s life art and art collections The museum not only offers out stan ding art and architecture it is also an authentic period piece from 1848 which is interesting today from both an aesthetic and historical perspective The teaching of the Schools Service is dia logue based and we aim at creating a constructive encounter between the student s own expe riences of art and the museum s specialist experience and interpretation an encounter in which we all learn and gain a subtler understanding of art of how it is perceived and used giving the student the experience of being an important valued co creator of new perspectives on and mea n ings for the art and the classical material in our collections Classical content modern focus The educational activities characteristically have a classical content but a present day focus The students are encouraged to relate creatively and reflectively to the classical art and to its topicality and meaning in a modern context This is done by incorporating digital media as well as current con temporary parallels in the teaching In this field of interactions between the classical and the contemporary new and relevant interpretations are broached with the students as co creators The students interpretations of art take a look We believe that the interpretations of art that arise in the encounter between student and museum can be of importance not only to the student but also to others inasmuch as communication about art becomes more interesting when more voices can be heard This is why the students digital creations are displayed in our digital Project Space at
