Thorvaldsen Museum
Denmark, Copenhagen

The Thorvaldsen Museum, located next to Christiansborg, has the largest collection of works by Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770–1844). Bertel Thorvaldsen is one of the most significant names in the field of neoclassical sculpture. Torvaldsen's whole life was romanticism of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. He rose from poverty to the very peak of wealth and success. Thorvaldsen devoted most of his work to mythological characters - Hercules, Psyche, Adonis and others. Thorvaldsen spent many years in unauthorized exile in Italy, and then triumphantly returned to his homeland in Copenhagen, where he was buried in the courtyard of his own museum.
