Hylas was a prince, the favourite of Hercules, who took part in the voyage of the Argonauts. One day when the ship Argo came to the shore in order to take fresh water aboard, the nymphs at the well were so fascinated with him that they dragged him down into the water to them. Hercules searched high and low for him, but finally had to give up. The voyage of the Argonauts was the dangerous mission led by Jason in order to capture the Golden Fleece. images%2f0fb5093ad0c410af5d5b4c4f5a78b89bdc2d499d
About the author:
Thorvaldsens Museum opened on 18 September 1848 and was the first public museum building in Denmark. The characteristic museum building was built to exhibit the extensive life’s work of the sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844) and today still looks more or less as it did when it opened over 150 years ago. Thorvaldsens Museum also contains Thorvaldsen's drawings and sketches for sculptures and reliefs. In addition Thorvaldsen was a passionate collector, so the museum also exhibits his extensive collections of paintings from his own time and collections of artworks and objects from Greek, Roman and Egyptian antiquity. The museum also shows changing exhibitions that go into greater depth with aspects of the permanent collections, including contemporary art.
