Glyptotek, Copenhagen

Right across from Copenhagen's City Hall is

Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek (as in Carlsberg beer)

Mostly sculpture and archaeology; an amazing Egyptian collection

Greek sculpture

A Roman copy of the Greek Socrates

Late Roman sculpture, the Lady of Palmyra

And a lot of Rodin, this his Victor Hugo and the Muse

The Burghers

We saw much of the Glyptotek Sunday morning, mostly the ancient collections and then the 19th and 20th century French paintings. It is an amazing museum, overhwelming in its size and coverage.
