Bertel Thorvaldsen was a nineteenth-century superstar, one of the most famous artists in Europe; he created works of art for the Pope, Napoleon and numerous royal households. His sculptures can be found from Paris to New York, and from Rome and Berlin to London - but the Thorvaldsens Museum in Copenhagen is the beating heart of his legacy. Alongside his own work, it contains his private collections, which include beautiful paintings from the Danish Golden Age and thousands of treasures from classical antiquity. In this addition to the acclaimed Director's Choice series, Stig Miss picks out his favourite pieces, creating a unique insight into a remarkable collection

Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844) by Stefano Grandesso( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is dedicated to Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770- 1844), a Danish sculptor of international fame during the XIX century. Born in Copenhagen in 1770, he spent more than forty years in Italy, maintaining a large workshop in Rome. When he eventually returned to his native land in 1838 he was more known in Europe than in Denmark. But in the following years it became rather vice versa. Obviously this is connected with the fact that in Copenhagen he could not keep the close contact he had in Rome with the international art community and art market in the cultural capital of Europe. As a matter of fact only within the last 30 years has Thorvaldsen regained his rightful place in the European art historical context and he is considered as an outstanding representative of the Neoclassical period in sculpture. In fact, his work has often been compared to that of Antonio Canova and he became the foremost artist in the field after Canova's death in 1822. The really strong point of this book is that it precisely links together Thorvaldsen's art with a broad international, artistic context and thus contributes to a more faceted understanding of his work
