Erik Pauelsen was a Danish painter. He is most notable for his landscapes and was a popular portraitist. However, he did not experience the same level of success as Jens Juel and Nicolai Abildgaard, his contemporaries, in 1790 he committed suicide. Erik Pauelsen was born in Østerballe Parish in Himmerland some time between 2 and 14 October 1749. From an early age he had his mind set on becoming an artist, he travelled to Copenhagen and studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts from 1770 to 1777 where he won the large silver medal and the small gold medal in 1775 and the large gold medal in 1777 together with the Academy's travel scholarship. He travelled to Rome by way of Hamburg, Düsseldorf and Paris and visited Dresden and Berlin on his way back. During his travels he became a member of several foreign art academies and was granted the title of professor in Düsseldorf. After his return to Denmark, he became a member of the art academy but was passed over for the post of professor by Jens Juel in 1784 and again for the position of painter to the royal court by Vigilius Eriksen.
For Pauelsen this could only be explained as a result of intrigue, he became more and more embittered. He remained a popular portraitist and enjoyed success as a landscape painter. From 1785 to 1786 he decorated a room in Frédéric de Coninck's mansion on Bredgade, now known as Moltke's Mansion after a owner; the decorations and overdoors, presented scenes from the environs of Dronningegård, de Coninck's country house north of Copenhagen. In 1788 he travelled to Norway and brought back a series of landscape paintings which were acquired by the royal painting collections. However, he suffered from his feeling belittled and defeated by his peers and in 1790 he committed suicide by jumping out of a window in his home. Pauelsen is most notable for his landscapes, he painted Sarpsfossen, now in the Danish National Gallery. Among those whose portraits he painted were Johannes Ewald, Søren Gyldendal and his wife, Friederike Brun with her daughter Ida Brun. Erik Pauelsen at Kunstindeks Danmark
Rome is the capital city and a special comune of Italy. Rome serves as the capital of the Lazio region. With 2,872,800 residents in 1,285 km2, it is the country's most populated comune, it is the fourth most populous city in the European Union by population within city limits. It is the centre of the Metropolitan City of Rome, which has a population of 4,355,725 residents, thus making it the most populous metropolitan city in Italy. Rome is located in the central-western portion of the Italian Peninsula, within Lazio, along the shores of the Tiber; the Vatican City is an independent country inside the city boundaries of Rome, the only existing example of a country within a city: for this reason Rome has been defined as capital of two states. Rome's history spans 28 centuries. While Roman mythology dates the founding of Rome at around 753 BC, the site has been inhabited for much longer, making it one of the oldest continuously occupied sites in Europe; the city's early population originated from a mix of Latins and Sabines.
The city successively became the capital of the Roman Kingdom, the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire, is regarded by some as the first metropolis. It was first called The Eternal City by the Roman poet Tibullus in the 1st century BC, the expression was taken up by Ovid and Livy. Rome is called the "Caput Mundi". After the fall of the Western Empire, which marked the beginning of the Middle Ages, Rome fell under the political control of the Papacy, in the 8th century it became the capital of the Papal States, which lasted until 1870. Beginning with the Renaissance all the popes since Nicholas V pursued over four hundred years a coherent architectural and urban programme aimed at making the city the artistic and cultural centre of the world. In this way, Rome became first one of the major centres of the Italian Renaissance, the birthplace of both the Baroque style and Neoclassicism. Famous artists, painters and architects made Rome the centre of their activity, creating masterpieces throughout the city.
In 1871, Rome became the capital of the Kingdom of Italy, which, in 1946, became the Italian Republic. Rome has the status of a global city. In 2016, Rome ranked as the 14th-most-visited city in the world, 3rd most visited in the European Union, the most popular tourist attraction in Italy, its historic centre is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The famous Vatican Museums are among the world's most visited museums while the Colosseum was the most popular tourist attraction in world with 7.4 million visitors in 2018. Host city for the 1960 Summer Olympics, Rome is the seat of several specialized agencies of the United Nations, such as the Food and Agriculture Organization, the World Food Programme and the International Fund for Agricultural Development; the city hosts the Secretariat of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Union for the Mediterranean as well as the headquarters of many international business companies such as Eni, Enel, TIM, Leonardo S.p. A. and national and international banks such as Unicredit and BNL.
Its business district, called EUR, is the base of many companies involved in the oil industry, the pharmaceutical industry, financial services. Rome is an important fashion and design centre thanks to renowned international brands centered in the city. Rome's Cinecittà Studios have been the set of many Academy Award–winning movies. According to the founding myth of the city by the Ancient Romans themselves, the long-held tradition of the origin of the name Roma is believed to have come from the city's founder and first king, Romulus. However, it is a possibility that the name Romulus was derived from Rome itself; as early as the 4th century, there have been alternative theories proposed on the origin of the name Roma. Several hypotheses have been advanced focusing on its linguistic roots which however remain uncertain: from Rumon or Rumen, archaic name of the Tiber, which in turn has the same root as the Greek verb ῥέω and the Latin verb ruo, which both mean "flow". There is archaeological evidence of human occupation of the Rome area from 14,000 years ago, but the dense layer of much younger debris obscures Palaeolithic and Neolithic sites.
Evidence of stone tools and stone weapons attest to about 10,000 years of human presence. Several excavations support the view that Rome grew from pastoral settlements on the Palatine Hill built above the area of the future Roman Forum. Between the end of the bronze age and the beginning of the Iron age, each hill between the sea and the Capitol was topped by a village. However, none of them had yet an urban quality. Nowadays, there is a wide consensus that the city developed through the aggregation of several villages around the largest one, placed above the Palatine; this aggregation was facilitated by the increase of agricultural productivity above the subsistence level, which allowed the establishment of secondary and tertiary activities. These in turn boosted the development of trade with the Greek colonies of southern Italy; these developments, which according to archaeological ev
Christian VII of Denmark
Christian VII was a monarch of the House of Oldenburg, King of Denmark–Norway and Duke of Schleswig and Holstein from 1766 until his death. For his motto he chose: "Gloria ex amore patriae". Christian VII's reign was marked by mental illness and for most of his reign Christian was only nominally king, his half-brother Frederick was designated as regent of Denmark in 1772. From 1784 until Christian VII's death in 1808, Christian's son Frederick VI, acted as unofficial regent. Christian was his first wife Louise of Great Britain, he was born in the Queen's Bedchamber at the royal residence in Copenhagen. He was baptized a few hours the same day, his godparents were King Frederick V, Queen Dowager Sophie Magdalene, Princess Louise and Princess Charlotte Amalie. A former heir to the throne named Christian, had died in infancy in 1747. Christoph Willibald Gluck conductor of the royal opera troupe, composed the opera La Contesa dei Numi, in which the Olympian Gods gather at the banks of the Great Belt and discuss who in particular should protect the new prince.
His mother Queen Louise died two years after his birth. The following year his father married Juliane Marie of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel. Early historians state that he had a winning personality and considerable talent, but that he was poorly educated and systematically terrorized by a brutal tutor, Christian Ditlev Frederik Reventlow, the Count of Reventlow, he seems to have been intelligent and had periods of clarity, but suffered from severe emotional problems schizophrenia, as argued by Doctor Viggo Christiansen in Christian VII's mental illness. After a long period of infirmity, Frederick V died 14 January 1766, just 42 years old; the same day, Christian was proclaimed king from the balcony of Christiansborg Palace, weeks before his 17th birthday. Christian's reign was marked by mental illness which affected government decisions, for most of his reign Christian was only nominally king, his court physicians were worried by his frequent masturbation. His royal advisers changed depending on. In the late 1760s, he came under the influence of his personal physician Johann Friedrich Struensee, who rose in power.
From 1770 to 1772, Struensee was de facto regent of the country, introduced progressive reforms signed into law by Christian VII. Struensee was deposed by a coup in 1772 after which the country was ruled by Christian's stepmother, Juliane Marie of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel, his half-brother Frederick and the Danish politician Ove Høegh-Guldberg; the young King was betrothed to his fifteen-year-old cousin Princess Caroline Matilda, sister of George III of the United Kingdom, anxious about the marriage but not aware that the bridegroom was mentally ill. The dynastic marriage took place at Christiansborg Palace on 8 November 1766. After his marriage, he abandoned himself to the worst excesses sexual promiscuity. In 1767, he entered into a relationship with the courtesan Støvlet-Cathrine, he sank into a condition of mental stupor. Symptoms during this time included paranoia, self-mutilation, hallucinations; the progressive and radical thinker Johann Friedrich Struensee, Christian's personal physician, became his advisor and rose in power in the late 1760s to de facto regent of the country, where he introduced widespread progressive reforms.
Struensee was a protégé of an Enlightenment circle of aristocrats, rejected by the court in Copenhagen. He was a skilled doctor, having somewhat restored the king's health while visiting the Schleswig-Holstein area, he gained the king's affection, he was retained as travelling physician on 5 April 1768, accompanied the entourage on the King’s foreign tour to Paris and London via Hannover from 6 May 1768 to 12 January 1769. He was given the title of State Councilor on 12 May 1768 a week after leaving Altona; the neglected and lonely Caroline Matilda entered into an affair with Struensee. In 1772, the king's marriage with Caroline Matilda was dissolved by divorce. Christian's marriage with Caroline Matilda produced two children: the future King Frederick VI and Princess Louise Auguste. However, it is believed that Louise was the daughter of Struensee—portrait comparisons tend to support this hypothesis. Struensee, who had enacted many modernising and emancipating reforms, was arrested and executed the same year.
Christian signed Struensee's arrest and execution warrant under pressure from his stepmother, Queen Juliane Marie, who had led the movement to have the marriage ended. Caroline Matilda, retaining her title but not her children left Denmark, passed her remaining days in exile at Celle Castle in her brother's German territory, the Electorate of Hanover, she died there of scarlet fever on 10 May 1775, at the age of 23. Christian was only nominally king from 1772 onward. Between 1772 and 1784, Denmark was ruled by his stepmother, the Queen Dowager Juliane Marie, his half-brother Frederick, the Danish politician Ove Høegh-Guldberg. From 1784, his son Frederick VI ruled permanently as prince regent; this regency was marked by liberal and agricultural reforms, but by the beginning of the disasters of the Napoleonic Wars. Christian died at age 59 of a stroke on 13 March 1808 in Schleswig. Although there were rumors that the stroke was caused by fright at the sight of Spanish auxiliary troops, which he took to be hostile, Ul
Simon Carl Stanley
Simon Carl Stanley was a Danish sculptor of English parentage. When he showed as a boy feel like drawing and træskæring, put him apprentice with hofbilledhugger JC Sturmberg. In his apprenticeship he performed among other 2 angels on Privy Krabbe's tomb at Roskilde Cathedral, made a part stucco decorations at Fredensborg Palace. To learn more, he went abroad visiting several cities in Germany and traveled to Amsterdam, where he sought training with Van Luchtern. In 1727 he traveled to England and while in London worked for Sculptors Laurent Delvaux from Ghent and Pieter Scheemaecker from Antwerp, which last had heard of Sturm's pupils. Stanley's self-employment and paling among other decoration of Lord Wilmington castle in Sussex, as he did some major monuments. In 20 years, Stanley was in all England, he had 2 times married, his first wife, born Anna Allen, a tenant farmer's daughter from Sussex, whom he had married in 1730, had died after 5 years of marriage, he had in 1737 married a pastor's daughter from Hanover, Magdalene Margrethe Lindemann, the mother of 2 sons, one of, the sculptor Carl Frederick Stanley.
Stanley had hardly thought of returning to Denmark, when he carried a notice from Copenhagen, Commander Gerner, who visited London, got a call there. Since both he and his wife agreed, wrought Gerner after his return through the county Danneskjold that King Christian VI of Denmark called Stanley and sent him raise money. Just as this was about to leave London, came after notification of the death of the king, but he went away and after his arrival in Copenhagen gracious received by King Frederik V of Denmark, which awarded the artist an annual pension, gave him the promise of space as the fleet sculptor and let him assign a block of marble, that he might show them a sample of his art. Stanley was now a small group: "Vertumnus and Cupid", a graceful rococo cabinet piece, bought to museum; the king took such pleasure in this work that he ordered a similar group: "Venus and Cupid". Of Stanley other statues could include a Ceres and Diana in Fredensborg Marble Garden and Park as well as a flora for Rosenborg Garden.
In addition, he performed a Ganymede with the eagle on what work he parade in 1752 as a member of the old Art Academy, since this 2 years reorganiseredes, he became one of its professors. No major sculptor company he seems to have unfolded here at home, he has done a couple of monuments and must have produced more than statues of the above, but he seems in his capacity hofbilledhugger that have been used to such things such as carrying out painting frames and model decorations at the royal trucks and at Academy of large gilded armchair. In his final years – from about 1753 – he was linked to the oldest Danish porcelain factory at the Blue Tower, he delivered his owner, JG Mehlhorn, different models, when Louis Fournier, who had made his first attempt at Stanley's house on Christianshavn in 1760 took over the factory, he had oversight of its activities. Took a long time he did not this position when he died 17 February 1761. While Stanley, judging by his few surviving works by the artist does not reach beyond the mediocre, he must, in consequence his novel portrays Büsching, deserve the best credentials as a human being.
He has not only been a man with an amiable and courteous creature, which won him his contemporaries' respect and love ", but in a rare degree been endowed with talents. He was musical and playing beautifully. Moreover, he wrote poems, after his return and his death, he employed himself in translating English religious writings, including by Fielding and Doddrige, who lauded for their beautiful Danish language, his portrait, painted by Eccard belong to the Academy
Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts
The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts has provided education in the arts for more than 250 years, playing its part in the development of the art of Denmark. The Royal Danish Academy of Portraiture and Architecture in Copenhagen was inaugurated on 31 March 1754, given as a gift to the King Frederik V on his 31st birthday, its name was changed to the Royal Danish Academy of Painting and Architecture in 1771. At the same event, Johann Friedrich Struensee introduced a new scheme in the academy to encourage artisan apprentices to take supplementary classes in drawing so as to develop the notion of "good taste"; the building boom resulting from the Great Fire of 1795 profited from this initiative. In 1814 the name was changed again, this time to the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, it is still situated in its original building, the Charlottenborg Palace, located on the Kongens Nytorv in Copenhagen. The School of Architecture has been situated in former naval buildings on Holmen since 1996; the academy is larger and better funded than the Jutland Art Academy and Funen Art Academy, which offer similar programs.
It teaches and conducts research on the subjects of painting, architecture, graphics and video and in the history of those subjects. The academy is under the administration of the Danish Ministry of Culture; the Academy’s School of Architecture offers education in the fields of architectural design and restoration and landscape planning and industrial and furniture design. The school has four research institutes and six affiliated research centres; the undergraduate course, leading to the Bachelor of Architecture diploma, lasts three years while the Master of Arts in Architecture is a two-year graduate course. Notable Danish architect Arne Jacobsen, a major influence behind the Architectural Functionalism, studied at the Academy, as did Bjarke Ingels, the rising star in the world of architecture and design. In 2011, the Wall Street Journal named Ingels the Innovator of the Year for architecture.

National Gallery of Denmark
The National Gallery of Denmark is the Danish national gallery, located in the centre of Copenhagen. The museum collects, maintains and handles Danish and foreign art dating from the 14th century to the present day; the museum's collections constitute 9,000 paintings and sculptures 240,000 works of art on paper as well as more than 2,600 plaster casts of figures from ancient times, the middle-ages and the Renaissance. Most of the older objects come from the Danish royal collection. 40,000 pieces from the collections are expected to be made available online by 2020. The display of European Art 1300–1800 is a comprehensive collection of art over the 500-year period, featuring works by Mantegna, Titian and Rembrandt; the art is spread over thirteen rooms, is the oldest art collection in Denmark, with a particular emphasis on Danish, Flemish, French and German pieces. Danish and Nordic Art 1750-1900 charts Scandinavian art from the beginnings of Danish painting through the ‘Golden Age’ to the birth of Modernism.
It displays over 400 works through 24 galleries. It features work by Abildgaard, Eckersberg, Købke and Hammershøi. SMK gained its modern French art collection in 1928 when it was donated by the late collector Johannes Rump; this collection features some of the museum’s most famous pieces from artists such as Matisse, Picasso and Braque. The collection was first offered to the SMK by Rump in 1923, but was rejected by the director Karl Madsen, as he did not believe it to be of a high enough quality. Housed in the museum’s 1993 extension, this 20th and 21st century collection is predominantly focused on the most important examples of modern Danish art. A long corridor of paintings looking onto Østre Anlæg park works as a chronological overview of the work from this period, whilst the smaller galleries focus on specific artists or movements; the Royal Collection of Graphic Art contains more than 240,000 works: copperprints, etchings, lithographic works and other kinds of art on paper, dating from the 15th century to the present day.
The beginnings of this collection were made around the time of Christian II. In his diary from 1521 the German painter Albrecht Dürer says he has given the King "the best pieces of all my prints". In 1843 the various works, which had so far been the king's private collection, were displayed to the public, it was moved into the Statens Museum for Kunst when the first building was completed in 1896, along with The Royal Collection of Paintings and The Royal Cast Collection. Although the papers contain a great number of foreign works, Danish art constitutes the main part of the collection; this collection is open to the public through the Print Room, access to which must be booked in advance of arrival. The Royal Cast Collection is held at the West India Warehouse, Toldbodgade 40, between The Little Mermaid and Nyhavn in Copenhagen, it consists of over 2,000 naked plaster casts of statues and reliefs from collections, temples and public places throughout the world, from antiquity to the Renaissance.
The Royal Cast Collection is only open for special events. The art was first put on display in 1895 with the intention of edifying visitors about the progression of representations of the human form over time in parallel with growing social and aesthetic awareness in the Western world. At the start of the Second World War the art of antiquity became unfashionable, associated with an archaic artistic tradition. In 1966, as abstract art became more popular, the Royal Cast Collection was removed to a barn outside Copenhagen for storage and only revived in 1984 when it was removed to the West India Warehouse; the collections of the Danish National Gallery originate in the Art Chamber of the Danish monarchs. When the German Gerhard Morell became Keeper of Frederick V's Art Chamber about 1750, he suggested that the king create a separate collection of paintings. To ensure that the collection was not inferior to those of other European royal houses and local counts, the king made large-scale purchases of Italian and German paintings.
The collection became well provided with Flemish and Dutch art. The most important purchase during Morell's term as keeper was Christ as the Suffering Redeemer by Andrea Mantegna.'Det Kongelige Billedgalleri' was housed in Christiansborg Palace until 1884 when the castle burnt down. It was not until the opening of the museum in 1896. Since a great variety of purchases have been made. During the 19th century the works were exclusively by Danish artists, for this reason the Museum has an unrivalled collection of paintings from the so-called Danish Golden Age; that the country was able to produce pictures of high artistic quality was something new, a consequence of the establishment of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 1754. More the collection has been influenced by generous donations and long-term loans. In 1928 Johannes Rump's large collection of early French Modernist paintings was donated to the Museum; this was followed by purchases of paintings and sculpture in the French tradition.
The original museum building was designed by Vilhelm Dahlerup and G. E. W. Møller and built 1889–1896 in a Historicist Italian Renaissance revival style. Towards the back of the museum is a large modern extension designed by the architects Anna Maria Indrio and Mads Møller from Arkitektfirmaet C. F. Møller; the extension was erected in 1998 to house the extensive modern art collection. The two buildings are connected by a glass panelled'Street of Sculptures
Frederiksborg Castle is a palatial complex in Hillerød, Denmark. It was built as a royal residence for King Christian IV of Denmark-Norway in the early 17th century, replacing an older castle acquired by Frederick II and becoming the largest Renaissance residence in Scandinavia. Situated on three islets in the Slotssøen, it is adjoined by a large formal garden in the Baroque style. After a serious fire in 1859, the castle was rebuilt on the basis of old paintings. Thanks to public support and the brewer J. C. Jacobsen, the building and its apartments were restored by 1882 when it was reopened to the public as the Danish Museum of National History. Open throughout the year, the museum contains the largest collection of portrait paintings in Denmark, it provides visitors with an opportunity to visit several of the castle's state rooms including the restored Valdemar Room and Great Hall as well as the Chapel and the Audience Chamber which were both spared by the fire and contain sumptuous decorations.
The estate known as Hillerødsholm near Hillerød had traditionally belonged to the Gøyes, one of the noble families of Denmark. In the 1520s and 1530s, Mogens Gøye, Steward of the Realm, had been instrumental in introducing the Danish Reformation, he lived in a half-timbered building on the most northerly of three adjoining islets on the estate's lake. The property was known as Hillerødsholm. After his daughter, married the courtier and naval hero Herluf Trolle in 1544, the couple became its proprietors. In the 1540s, Trolle replaced the old building with a larger manor house. In 1550, Frederick II, king of Denmark and Norway from 1559 to 1588, concluded an exchange agreement with Herluf Trolle and his wife whereby Trolle received the manor of Skovkloster in the south of Zealand while the king acquired the Hillerødsholm Estate; as the old building with twin towers was too small for the king, in 1560 he arranged for extensions and additions under Trolle's supervision. At the king's request, Trolle remained on the premises.
The king renamed the estate Frederiksborg. Interested in deer hunting, he used the castle with the neighbouring Bath House as a royal hunting lodge, centred as it was in the fields and forests he owned in the north of Zealand; the additions included a gated wall to the south. Still standing today is the quadrangular red-brick, tip-roofed house on Staldgade known as Herluf Trolle's Tower. Adjoining this are two long, narrow red-brick stable buildings: the King's Stables to the west and the Hussars' Stables to the east; these in turn lead to a wall along the lake with two round towers completed in 1562 bearing the arms of Frederick II and his motto Mein Hoffnung zu Gott allein. On the central islet, the long pantry house with stepped gables can be seen today; the most important building from Frederick II's times is the Bath House in the park northwest of the islets. Completed in 1581 in the Renaissance style with three protruding step-gabled wings, it served the king as a hunting lodge during the summer months.
Frederiksborg Castle was the first Danish castle to be built inland. All previous castles had been on the coast or close to ports as the sea had traditionally been the principal means of travel, it was the first to be built for purely recreational purposes rather than for defence. Its location in Hillerød led to the development of vastly improved roads reserved for the king. Kongevej, linking Frederiksborg with Copenhagen, was completed in 1588. Frederik's son Christian, born there became attached to the castle as a child; when reigning as Christian IV he decided to have it rebuilt in the Flemish and Dutch Renaissance style. The old building was demolished in 1599 and the Flemish architect Hans van Steenwinckel the Elder was charged with planning the new building. After his death in 1601, his sons Hans and Lorenz completed the assignment; the main four-storey building with its three wings was completed around 1610 but work continued on the Chapel until 1618. The entire complex was finished around 1620, becoming the largest Renaissance building in Scandinavia.
The main Renaissance building built by Christian IV was thus completed in under ten years, an astonishing accomplishment at the time, although there were additions until the early 1620s. In 1659 during the Second Northern War, the castle was captured by the Swedes who took most of its artworks as war reparations. During the Swedish occupation, the queen of Sweden, Hedvig Eleonora of Holstein-Gottorp, used the palace and hunted in the woods with the English envoy to Sweden. After Christian IV's death in 1648, the castle was used for ceremonial events; the Chapel was the scene of the coronations and anointments of all the Danish monarchs from 1671 to 1840 except for that of Christian VII. 1671: Christian V and Charlotte Amalie of Hesse-Kassel 1700: Frederick IV and Louise of Mecklenburg-Güstrow 1721: Anna Sophia, consort of Frederick IV 1731: Christian VI and Sophia Magdalena of Brandenburg-Kulmbach 1747: Frederick V and Louise of Great Britain 1752: Juliana Maria of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel, consort of Frederick V 1815: Frederick VI and Marie of Hesse-Kassel 1840: Christian VIII and Caroline Amalie of Schleswig-HolsteinIn July 1720, the Treaty of Frederiksborg was signed in the castle, ending the Great Northern War between Sweden and Denmark-Norway which had started in 1700.
In the 1850s, the castle was again used as a residence by King Frederick VII. While he was staying there on the night of 16 December 1859, he retired to a room on
