DELVE INTO AN EXPLORATION OF THE LIFE AND ART OF BERTEL THORVALDSEN

This archive holds the primary written sources for Thorvaldsen’s life and work. The documents also extend beyond the sculptor, offering a vivid glimpse of the entire period from 1770 to 1850. Regardless of whether your interest is Thorvaldsen, his contemporaries, or just the period in which he lived, you can find valuable knowledge here. You can study the individual documents https://arkivet.thorvaldsensmuseum.dk/documents or read recapitulated articles https://arkivet.thorvaldsensmuseum.dk/articles. You can search the personal biographies https://arkivet.thorvaldsensmuseum.dk/people for persons in Thorvaldsen’s extensive network or look into what the sculptor was up to from day-to-day as well as which works he made when in the Chronology https://arkivet.thorvaldsensmuseum.dk/chronology. In short – delve into it and learn more!

The vast and innovative research and dissemination project was initiated back in 2004, and The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives contributed to Thorvaldsens Museum winning the Danish Museum Prize in 2008 for, “[the] innovative and consistent work to make the rich collections and archives of the museum more accessible to the outside world”. Since then the Archives has only grown in scope and momentum.

The work of the Archives in its current project period is supported by 15. Juni Fonden, Augustinus Fonden, Beckett-Fonden, New Carlsberg Foundation, Novo Nordisk Foundation, and Aage & Johanne Louis-Hansens Fond.

GÅ PÅ OPDAGELSE I THORVALDSENS LIV OG KUNST

 Uanset om du specifikt interesserer dig for Thorvaldsen eller for hans samtid, kan du finde nyttig viden her. Du kan studere de enkelte dokumenter eller læse sammenfattende artikler; du kan lede efter personer i Thorvaldsens kolossale netværk i personbiografierne eller se, hvad billedhuggeren foretog sig dag for dag og hvilke værker, han lavede hvornår i kronologien. Kort sagt – dyk ned og bliv klogere.

Det omfattende og nyskabende forsknings- og formidlingsprojekt Arkivet har efterhånden mange år på bagen og medvirkede i 2008 til, at Thorvaldsens Museum vandt Den Danske Museumspris for ”nytænkende og konsekvent at arbejde på at gøre museets righoldige samlinger og arkiver tilgængelige for omverdenen.” Efter den tid er Arkivet kun vokset i omfang og styrke.
Arkivets arbejde støttes i indeværende projektperiode af Augustinus Fonden, Beckett-Fonden, 15. Juni Fonden, Novo Nordisk Fonden, Ny Carlsbergfondet og Aage og Johanne Louis-Hansens Fond.
