The Italian Antonio Canova ( Protected content ) and Danish Bertel Thorvaldsen ( Protected content ), were two “modern classic” artists who transformed the very idea of sculpture itself and its techniques to create immortal artworks that have become popular and have been recreated throughout the world.
With more than Protected content on display, a major exhibition for the very first time enables visitors to compare the two great contemporaries and rivals, Canova and Thorvaldsen, heralded as the founders of modern sculpture.
The exhibition has been set up in collaboration with the Thorvaldsens Museum in Copenhagen and the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg.
