  • Bertel Thorvaldsen - Thorvaldsensmuseum
    great fame was Jason with the Golden Fleece from 1803 In the eyes of the age the sculpture marked the beginning of a new period in history when belief in a free humankind created in the light of antiquity was important As such Thorvaldsen s Jason stands on the threshold of the nineteenth century during which the western democracies saw the light of day Thorvaldsen s breakthrough work Jason with the Golden Fleece 1803 After the breakthrough with Jason commissions flooded in for Thorvaldsen In order to meet the demand he gradually took on many assistants and a whole five studios in Rome and his works were set up all over Europe Thorvaldsen s sculptures Thorvaldsen first and foremost took his subjects from the mythology of antiquity the goddess of beauty Venus the cupbearer of the gods Ganymede and the god of love Cupid are examples of this In addition Thorvaldsen created tomb monu ments for among others Pope Pius VII in St Peter s in Rome memo rials to the inventor of printing Gutenberg for the public square in Mainz and the astronomer Copernicus for a central square in Warsaw just to mention a few In Denmark too Thorvaldsen was given major commissions Best known are the sculptures of Christ and the Apostles in the cathedral the Church of Our Lady in Copenhagen Bertel Thorvaldsen Mercury about to Kill Argus 1818 In the nineteenth century art and life were inspired by Roman and Greek antiquity that is by ancient and classical art For that reason the art of the period is also called Neoclassicism and at an early stage Thorvaldsen was able to give highly convincing artistic expression to this resurgence of the classical ideals in his sculptures Thorvaldsen s life Thorvaldsen was born in Copenhagen on 19 November 1770 His father had immi grated from Iceland and made his living as a carver of ship decorations in wood His mother was the daughter of a parish clerk near Lemvig in Jutland The young Bertel was admitted to the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen at the early age of 11 where he quickly showed unusually great talent After he had completed his edu ca tion a scholarship enabled him to study further in Italy His study period in Rome became his working life The order book filled up and soon he was one of Europe s best known artists He spent a good forty years in Rome no wonder he celebrated the date of his arrival in the city 8 March 1797 as his Roman birthday Not until 1838 did Thorvaldsen return to Denmark After coming home he became the first and to this day remains the only person to be granted freedom of the city of Copenhagen On 24 March 1844 Bertel Thorvaldsen died 73 years old struck down by heart failure as he attended the overture of the evening s perfor mance at the Royal Danish Theatre His coffin was placed in a chapel in

  • plaster casts - Thorvaldsensmuseum
    Many of Thorvaldsen s works in the museum are made of plaster They include the small studies for planned works exhibited in the basement and the original models for sculptures in marble and bronze exhibited on the ground floor and first floor Both the small studies and the original models were originally made by Thorvaldsen and his assistants in clay When clay dries the shape will change and it will crack Thorvaldsen therefore had to transform the sculptures into plaster which is a more stable material while the clay was still damp These plaster sculptures are thus the original studies and models for Thorvaldsen s sculptures in marble or bronze the first versions so to speak of the work whereas the marble sculptures were often carved in several copies Time has left it s mark Thorvaldsen saved all his plaster casts in his studios in Rome and ever since Thorvaldsens s time air pollution and smoke from the stoves in his studio and in the museum have fallen on the originally white plaster and penetrated deeply into the porous surface On some sculptures the dirt is causing the spectator great inconvenience It is now possible to clean the works chemically
