The exhibition includes 125 works that reflect the development of French and Danish sculpture in the 19th and 20th centuries. From extremely exquisite and realistic portraits of Danish masters such as Sinding, Bissen and Jerichau, to violator of traditions and habits, French authors, including Auguste Rodin. Glyptotek owns one of the largest sculptural collections in the world.
The exhibition shows the massive 19th-century "struggle" for style, expression and power, as well as 20th-century sculptures by artists such as Matisse and Robert Jacobsen. The exhibit is a showcase for art's ability to transform durable materials such as raw marble into images of ultra-light, slender figures whose breathtaking brightness borders on superhuman.
