Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844) is one of Denmark’s most famous artists. He was born into poor circumstances in Copenhagen, but lived and worked the majority of his life – over 40 years – in Rome where he became one of the most important European representatives of the Neo-Classicist sculptural art.
