Ida Brun (1792-1857) was given a very extensive aesthetic upbringing by her mother, Friederike Brun, to enable her to become the ideal of female beauty, charm, intellect and talent. Ida had to devote herself to everything beautiful – nature in its splendour and exquisite art, and she was given the best teachers in language, music, singing, dancing and drawing. Her attitude dancing and her beautiful singing voice were much admired by her contemporaries. Thorvaldsen had undertaken to give drawing lessons to Brun but he preferred having her sing to him, while he accompanied her on the guitar. Deeply impressed by Brun's beauty and grace, in 1810, Thorvaldsen modelled a portrait bust of Brun. [Full object history] 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.
