Thorvaldsens Museum and its collection

Thorvaldsens Museum

The Thorvaldsens Museum is a museum in Copenhagen that is dedicated to Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844). It is the oldest museum in Denmark that was built from 1839 to 1848, after the sculptor returned from Rome in 1838. In addition to the collection of models and drawings of almost all sculptures, sculpture groups and reliefs, the museum also displays the artist's private collection. These include paintings by contemporaries, as well as a large collection of Greek, Roman and Egyptian antiques, books, coins and various other objects. In the museum's courtyard is the sculptor's simple, unadorned grave.
