Guided tour in English: 8 July at 1.00 p.m.
An introduction to the Glyptotek’s unique collection of Danish and French sculpture from the 19th and the 20th centuries. Enjoy a pleasurable tour of the newly re-opened sculpture rooms where the human body in marble and bronze reveals artistic ambitions, dreams of mastering the material and the transformation of blocks of rough stone into daring forms and dramatic creations. Sculpture celebrates the human being’s diverse narratives. Here are the young lovers, people fighting, weighed down with personal grief or filled with joy. In the hands of the artists the material is transformed into living representations in which we see ourselves reflected. As an art form, sculpture is fascinating. Catch a glimpse into sculpture’s moving universe and feast your eyes on masterpieces by the French salon artists, by the ground-breaking Rodin and the great Danish masters Sinding, Bissen and Jerichau.
