Enjoy a peek behind the scenes and hear the Glyptotek’s curators talk about the various research projects that underlie the museum’s collections. The lectures take place in the Great Hall, followed by a cup of coffee and a croissant in Picnic, the museum’s café.
9 December. Glory to the Vanquished! A French Monument in Denmark
There are seven full-sized copies of Antonin Mercié’s 1875 bronze sculptural group Gloria Victis (Glory to the Vanquished) in the world, and only one outside of France. This talk recalls the fascinating story behind the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek’s Gloria Victis, which today stands in the Winter Garden, and Carl Jacobsen’s twenty-five year struggle to obtain it.
Nicholas Parkinson, PhD, is a Novo Nordisk Mads Øvlisen Postdoctoral Fellow at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek. His research examines artistic exchanges between France and Denmark in the late nineteenth century, with a focus on the power of politics and institutions on shaping art historical knowledge.
The talk is in English.
