The First part of this publication describes each of his works

and the second part has a sketch of each of the works.

Quote from book: 'AÑ, the period that intervened between the year 1812, when Alexander's triumphal entry was executed, and the year 1814, Thorwaldsen seems, at least in a certain degree, to have lost sight of that circle of ideas which in the year 1812 occupied his artistic mind. He had at that time, as before mentioned, completed his Cupid, but the leading idea was, in his opinion, not yet clearly represented. He resumed, therefore, this work, and after making several important alterations, exhibited a CUPID TRIUMPHANT (4 feet 4in.) The mightiest Olympian Gods are subdued, but Cupid is still pondering on new conquests. He has deprived Jupiter of his thunderbolt and Mars of his helmet. On the trunk, on which he leans, he has hung the lyre of Apollo and the lion skin of Hercules. In his left hand he holds his bow, always ready to propel the arrow, and in his right he lifts up an arrow examining, whether it is keen enough to kill the rest of the celestials.'

Thorvaldsen was born in Copenhagen into a Danish/Icelandic family of humble means, and was accepted to the Royal Academy of Arts when he was eleven years old. Working part-time with his father, who was a wood carver, Thorvaldsen won many honors and medals at the academy. He was awarded a stipend to travel to Rome and continue his education. In Rome Thorvaldsen quickly made a name for himself as a sculptor. Maintaining a large workshop in the city, he worked in a heroic neo-classicist style. His patrons resided all over Europe. Upon his return to Denmark in 1838, Thorvaldsen was received as a national hero. The Thorvaldsens Museum was erected to house his works next to Christiansborg Palace. Thorvaldsen is buried within the courtyard of the museum. In his time, he was seen as the successor of master sculptor Antonio Canova. His strict adherence to classical norms has tended to estrange modern audiences. Among his more famous works are the statues of Nicolaus Copernicus and Jozef Poniatowski in Warsaw; the statue of Maximilian I in Munich; and the tomb monument of Pope Pius VII, the only work by a non-Italian in St. Peter's Basilica. -Wikipedia

About The Franklin Bookstore

The Franklin Bookstore began in 1996 by Robert & Ruth Lynn in Humboldt, Tennessee. Retiring from the Navy and a business career and always a history buff, Robert and Ruth opened the business of selling and dealing with rare books, magazines and newspapers. Many items were acquired from other rare books dealers from across the country. The Franklin Bookstore continues with his offspring mindful to keep the high ethical business examples that Dad established. We feel honored to be associated with such a virtual history of the printed word, inherently beautiful and fascinating artifacts of our cultural past. Every item we offer is guaranteed to be absolutely genuine and as described. A large part of the inventory is periodicals that date from the Revolutionary War to World War II and into the 21 century.
