  • Romeo and Juliet D659 - Thorvaldsensmuseum
    Peter Cornelius drawing is one of several though they are not in Thorvaldsens Museum with motifs from Shakespeare s tragedy Romeo and Juliet Cornelius was born in Düsseldorf and came to Rome in the autumn of 1811 The previous year a group of young German artists there had settled in the monastery of Sant Isidoro where in an ascetic pious and simple fraternity they sought to revive the religious painting of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance They were known in the town for their long hair and so came to be called Nazarenes after Jesus of Nazareth Cornelius was profoundly fascinated by this community of artists but failed to live up their lofty ethical demands in every way Thus in 1813 he had a relationship with a young Italian woman whom he had to marry because she became pregnant The dry almost pedantic lines in this drawing are typical of the Nazarenes but its contents are atypical of them with their focus on a love that quite obviously does not only reflect a spiritual relationship Note the tempting alcove in the semi darkness on the left The motif is taken from Act 2 Scene 5 in the tragedy where

  • The Birth of Light D814 - Thorvaldsensmuseum
    surroundings of any kind However this absence of surroundings is significant For if we examine the sources on which Carstens bases himself it emerges that they go back to a shadowy Phoenician creation myth from before 1200 BC The scene portrays an early cosmological stage in which the surroundings have simply not yet been created All that exists is the primeval male power Phtas and the female state Neitha Night She has given birth to their child Phanes Light who in the drawing standing between his parents is triumphantly holding up a torch above his head and the primal embryo of all creatures has been born from the breath of Phtas When this egg which can just be seen in the drawing to the left of Phtas has been hatched heaven the ocean and all other things arise The little core family is as it were encapsulated in a cloak like shell the magnificent sweep of the elliptical outline also suggests something in the shape of an egg So here we have two egg shaped stars floating weightlessly In the light of art history the cloak and Phtas s muscular physique echo Michelangelo s portrayals of God on the ceiling
