Thorvaldsens Museum - Review

Dedicated to sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen, the Thorvaldsens Museum has some of the best works of the artist and is loved for its collection of sculptures, paintings, sketches, graphic art, medals, personal belongings, letters, personal books and porcelain artefacts. The museum is also the burial place of the artist.

Start you visit from the inner courtyard where the artist was laid down and proceed to see the Egyptian accents including trapezoidal doors and traditional colours. The whole museum is filled with bronze, plaster and marble sculptures along with Greek, Egyptian and Roman paintings, drawing and prints collected by the artist during his travel around the world! Rome was where Bertel Thorvaldsen lived and worked for most of his life and the collection shows just that!

Some of the highlights include:

  • ‘The Three Graces with Cupid’ sculpture
  • The Cupid’ sculpture
  • ‘The Shepherd’ sculpture
  • ‘Young Girl Dancing’ sculpture
  • A portrait of the artist painted by Floriano Pietrocola

Thorvaldsens Museum, Copenhagen Reviews

Google+
  • Recommended only for art lovers who appreciate sculptures. Art photographers may also like the place. I personally visited the place only because this was included in the Copenhagen city tourist card.

  • Very good museum. Nice light on the sculpture and plaster. And yes the sculpture are not old (19 th) because it's neoclassicism. Not antiquity. Nice idea not only to put the art of the artist but also personal object and his private collection of antiquities. Neoclassicism is a revival of the styles and spirit of classic antiquity inspired directly from the classical period

  • It consist of a lower floor, a main floor and a upper floor. Cloakroom and toilets facilities are available. The main floor is most important of all.The upper floor has well collection of Thorvaldsen's paintings and antiquities.

  • If you're visiting Copenhagen (especially if using the Copenhagen card), Thorvaldsens Museum is a no brainer to visit. Containing an enormous collection of Thorvaldsen and his apprentices' works, visitors will be awestruck by things as simple as the mouldings on the walls. Coming from Canada, even our parliament buildings don't have so much detail and ornamentation in them.

  • Pretty small, but the sculptures are amazing. There are many famous people from history represented as well.
