This superb publication on the most important classical Danish sculptor, Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1848), contains a thorough account of his life, work and fame throughout Europe, including his break-through and major European commissions during his many years in Rome. A great range of his work is illustrated, from pieces with themes from classical mythology, to those with religious subjects including his world famous Christ figure.
