Museum of Hendrik Christian Andersen - Rome


The Hendrik Christian Andersen Museum is located in what was the home and studio of this Norwegian sculptor who lived in Rome for over 40 years until his death in 1940. This palace was built between 1922 and 1925 in a district that was undergoing extensive development at the time. On display are his often robust nudes as well as the amazing plans he drew up for an ideal World City, very similar to a university campus. The eclectic work of over 200 bronze and plaster sculptures, some 200 canvases and 300 graphics take on a much greater meaning when interpreted in the light of this ambitious architectural and scientific project.
