Photographer's Note

Glytoteket is one of the nicest museums in Copenhagen. It was founded in the late 19th century by the wealthy bourgeois Carl Jacobsen, owner of the Carlsberg brewery. The collection show what was fashionable collectors items in that period, ancient egypt, greek and roman art and french impressionism.
The oldest part of the museum is centred around a winter garden beneath a large glass cupola, a wonderful space. A large extension from the early 20th century added grand neo-classicist galleries. Ten years ago a new building was added in one of the courtyards of the neo-classicist building, a gleaming white shrine in stucco lustro inserted in between the rough rendered brick walls. In the gap between the old and the new building a stepped street winds upwards beneath a large skylight.
A fine view of this place is already published on TE by Anadai.
So I chose to focus on the characteristic texture of the large Rodin sculpture and the large bright space that it stands in.
