Bertel Thorveldson (1770-1844) was a genius art born in Copenhagen, who found fame after his ‘Grand Tour’ led him to Rome. He stayed there for 40 years, and his designs were embraced by the fashionable Europeans seeking a contemporary version of antiquity. His best known works are the products of the Royal Copenhagen porcelain factory, where his designs were in production from the mid-19th century into the 21st century.
