Se volessimo fare il gioco semiserio di stabilire una periodizzazione interna al neoclassicismo dovremmo riconoscervi almeno tre microsezioni: la prima è quella della pura teoresi, di Winckelmann, dunque degli artisti teorici che si riuniscono attorno a lui, come Mengs, la sensibile Angelika Kaufman, in Francia Vien, in fondo lo stesso Piranesi, anche se con idee tutte sue rispetto al resto del gruppo. La seconda è quella dei grandi nomi, David e Canova, personalità talmente forti che fungono da attrattori per il resto d' Europa e, attraverso le pratiche, fissano uno stile. Infine una terza linea temporale, meno direttamente politica della precedente, che davvero pratica il culto della bellezza ideale, ma in maniera così radicale da giungere a risultati opposti: il feroce manierismo di Ingres, che in nome della bellezza ideale deforma le figure e il culto classico della forma davvero radicale di Thorvaldsen. Quest' ultimo tra gli artisti neoclassici è quello più vicino alle teorizzazioni di Winckelmann, fino ad esserne, con mezzi poetici ben maggiori di Mengs, il vero traduttore in arte. Vicino fin quasi alla perversione: tutta la prima produzione di Thorvaldsen è una puntuale risposta a Canova e a David: laddove nei secondi tutto era lieve fremito rigorosamente controllato, qui il sentimento è radicalmente escluso o è  sottile increspatura, aggiunta per non rendere la statua una semplice posa. Se Winckelmann tradisce, come scrive Franco Rella, l' ambizione a un corpo morto, senza viscere, pura linea allucinata, Thorvaldsen lo segue, cercando al massimo di limarne le asperità: il soggetto di Canova e David è nevrotico, rimuove il desiderio, quello di Thorvaldsen è paranoide, lo forclude. Pure, nell'ultimo periodo della carriera appare in Thorvaldsen una vena ironica sempre taciuta, non si sa se frutto della saggezza dell' età o sempre esistita sotto traccia. Tutto era sogno della ragione che, si sa, genera mostri

I’m about to blow your mind!! Hey!! @thorvaldsensmuseum look what I went to see @hermitage_museum. Thorvaldsen was such a big deal even Catherine the Great had to have one! #thorvaldsenwasabigdeal #thorvaldsen #art #scultpure  #aroundtheworld #espinosa_no_lotz😫 #craftcruise_baltic2018 #knittingadventure2018 #russia #stpetersburg #hermitage #allatours  #opulenceihasit
It looks like Thorvaldsen sent a young woman out for a coffee at Starbucks. But Thorvaldsen's sculpture imagines the beautiful Psyche.
The sculpture here is one of his early interpretations modeled in 1806.
The motive refers to the myth of Cupid and Psyche, which contains envy, drama and a happy ending. To get rid of Psyche, Venus made a trap for her. She sent her out for a jar of beauty ointment, which she was not allowed to open. But Psyche was humanly curious and opened the jar on the way back to Venus. The jar contained poisonous vapors that made Psyche unconscious.
It is told at the end of the ancient myth that Psyche was rescued by her beloved Cupid and that the gods appointed her as the goddess of souls, so that Cupid and she could live forever together. 
She is a timeless piece of art bought back to Denmark from the Hope Family art collection in 1917. #beautiful #loves_united_details #starbucks #coffee #coffeeholic #thorvaldsen #thorvaldsensmuseum #psyche #cupid #amor #venus #love #myth #lovestory #happyending #museum #hope #hopefamily #collection #carrara #carraramarble #marble #visitdenmark #wonderfulcopenhagen

This is the home of JC Carlsberg. He built this home when he moved out here with his wife, Laura, and his young son Carl. Laura didn’t want to live there because she was afraid that it would ruin her social life since she was outside of the city and everyone would forget about her. But, Laura honey, you have the beer, the gardens, and a new house, and the beer. So, duh, the parties all moved to Laura’s house!! Pasteur and Andersen all partied at Laura’s House! Cool 😎 until JC dies and writes his son out of the will (asshole, remember) and gives EVERYTHING to the Carlsberg Foundation. EVERYTHING except the house where Laura and Carl can live for free until they die. Carl hated his dad so much that he never lived there as an  adult. When Laura dies the house goes to the trust and they decide to make it free housing for a scientist. A scientist could apply to live and work there and they could have it for life. For. Free. And..: guess WHO got to live there?!?!? None other than Mr-Order-of-the-Elephant Niels Bohr!!! Yup! Lesson: if you are Danish and become famous, your Danish peeps will hook you up!!! BTW, #Thorvaldsen never got to party with Laura. He dies in 1844 and the house  was built in 1854~ish. I asked... but JC loved Thorvaldsen and hooked him up beforehand because #Danish ! .

The table decorations are gilded bronze. Do they look familiar?!? 👀 Again!!!! They were commissioned by Prince Christian Frederik after visiting.... yep, Thorvaldsens atelier in a Rome. 11 miniatures of the originals were ordered and made. Oh, and remember that other Danish artist Freund that did such good work with the Nordic Deities subject? Yeah, well, he was the one that did most of this work on behalf of BT’s atelier. I wonder... did Thorvaldsen get The Order of the Elephant? Because he should have!! #onebighappyfamily #beautyeverywhere #lotzpinosa #aroundtheworld #citiesonthewater #københavn #amalienborg #thorvaldsenwasabigdeal #thorvaldsensmuseum #thorvaldsen

Ok... last Thorvaldsen post. (Sort of... you’ll see) two very important works by this guy- (let’s just call him BT or Alberto like his Italian friends called him) the Jason and Byron. Jason is monster-sized and stands in the entrance stairwell because he’s that big! Colossal sized Jason is what truly started it all for BT when a rich banker saw it and commissioned him to make it in marble. And the Byron- we’ll, they didn’t like each other. But BT’s game was so huge that getting your bust done by him was “the thing to do” in Rome at the time! HA!

You know what this is?!? Thorvaldsens personal Gemstone, coin, and antique vase collection. This guy banked on his art. He was commissioned by the Vatican for a statue of Pope Pius VII and is the only non Italian to have been commissioned for a piece in the Vatican. He wasn’t even a catholic. He was Protestant and the church still wanted his work so badly they said make it for us but don’t put your name on it, cause that might look bad on us. Because, after Canova dies- Thorvaldsen is top dog and the best. He was paid like 20,000 Roman crowns for it. Don’t know what that is today but it sounds like a lot and all this cash enabled him to collect all this stuff (which was expensive. Think: he collected gems and Antigue vases!!) #thorvaldsensmuseum #thorvaldsen #lotzpinosa #aroundtheworld #beautyeverywhere #thorvaldsenwasabigdeal #københavn

Here is a little 👀 into what I consider a huge undertaking by this guy! A full set of larger than life Christ and the twelve apostles. These are the original plaster models for the sculptures in The Church of our Lady #København. These things are massive and took 10 years or so to complete. #thorvaldsen #thorvaldsensmuseum #thorvaldsenwasabigdeal #aroundtheworld #lotzpinosa #nordicadventures #art #scultpure
Thorvaldsen’s work in order. The Copernicus, Gutenberg, the Graces, Venus, Jason, Mars, and Mercury. These statues are full size and detailed in a very classical style. Even though Thorvaldsen worked in a period where sculpture was transitioning to realism he was a rigid believer in the classical forms. He got to work in Rome with masters of sculpture and was seen as the successor to Canova (remember that Perseus Triumphant from the #glyptoteket ??) He came from Danish- Icelandic parents of humble means but his talent got him patrons from all over Europe and a lot of cash!! #københavn #lotzpinosa #aroundtheworld #beautyeverywhere #nordicadventures #thorvaldsen #thorvaldsenwasabigdeal

Some pieces you can just taste. Creamy, peachy, cool and sweet like a perfect summer dessert - this cameo necklace is my favorite flavour today.

#Necklace from 1844 with #cameos by Peter Petersen, Rome, based on motifs by Bertel #Thorvaldsen, with #Cupid and Hymen spinning the threads of life in the centre. Generously loaned to the exhibition The Splendour of Power by Designmuseum Danmark. Photo by @ibenkaufmann.

Och favoritstaden Köpenhamn.
En höjdpunkt var att äntligen få se Thorvaldsens berömda gestaltning av Jesus och de tolv apostlarna i domkyrkan, Vor Frue Kirke.
Bilden av Guds barmhärtighet och kärlek till den lilla människan.
Just vad jag kan behöva.

Molto probabilmente la “Danzatrice col dito al mento” di Luigi #Bienaimé (1795 - 1878) è collegata alla love story tra il banchiere Alessandro Torlonia e la moglie dell’ambasciatore russo a Roma, Marina Guriev. A quanto si apprende da lettere private, depositarie del miglior gossip dell’epoca, a un certo punto Alessandro Torlonia aveva smesso di fare ricevimenti, “assai malinconico per la partenza della Guriev”. Nel 1830 la nobildonna russa aveva acquistato col marito, durante la permanenza a Roma, la meravigliosa “Danzatrice col dito al mento” di Antonio #Canova. È plausibile quindi che il #Torlonia abbia commissionato a Luigi Bienaimé, allievo del #Thorvaldsen, una copia - donata poi alla Galleria Corsini, e a lungo scambiata con l’originale canoviano creduto disperso -  per condensare in questa dolce controeffigie la presenza dell’amata.

Detail of two out of Three Graces Listening to Cupid’s Song by Bertel Thorvaldsen (1768-1844), 1836. Two years later Thorvaldsen returned to Denmark after more than 40 years in the eternal city. #nasjonalgalleriet Oslo, Thank You for the visit in June🙏. #sculpture #neoclassicalsculpture #marble #thorvaldsen
Thorvaldsen's delightful sculpture of Russia's empress Maria Feodorovna - not to be confused with her later namesake, also Maria Feodorovna who grew up known as Princess Dagmar of Denmark. 
This lovely statue was comissioned during Feodorovna's visit to Rome, where Bertel Thorvaldsen worked for many years. He was a central person in the Danish artist colony in the mid-1850s. 
The second Maria Feodorovna was the mother of the last of the Russian czars. She also inspired artists; the Russian court's jeweler Fabergė created his jeweled eggs as annual gifts to Maria Feodorovna for Easter.
