Take a tour through the universe of Thorvaldsens Museum. On the tours you follow paths through the museum’s collections and experience new links between works in the museum.
Crosscuts are guided tours through the digital universe of Thorvaldsens Museum. With a starting point in a particular theme, each tour goes through the museum’s collection of Bertel Thorvaldsen’s own works and his extensive collections of the paintings of his time, of ancient Egyptian, Greek, Etruscan and Roman objects and of the sculptures of other artists, his own medallions and personal objects etc. Thorvaldsen took a keen interest in his collections, and was often inspired by motifs or subjects from the artworks and ancient objects he had collected.
Many themes therefore cut across the museum’s many collections. Crosscuts are thus routes through the collections which point to connections among works that are not exhibited together, or which are in the museum’s stores.
