Photographer's Note

The museum opened on 18 September 1848 and was the first public museum building in Denmark. The museum was built to exhibit the extensive life’s work of the sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844) and today still looks more or less as it did when it opened over 150 years ago.rnrnThorvaldsens Museum also contains Thorvaldsen's drawings and sketches for sculptures and reliefs. In addition Thorvaldsen was a passionate collector, so the museum also exhibits his extensive collections of paintings from his own time and collections of artworks and objects from Greek, Roman and Egyptian antiquity. The museum also shows changing exhibitions that go into greater depth with aspects of the collections, including contemporary art.rnrnIn this room: Baptismal Angel Kneeling in the centre, surrounded by the apostles and Christ.rnrnWS Another detail from the museum
