Andreas Johnsen Kolberg – En drukken faun, 1857. Gyldenløvesgade ved St. Jørgens Sø (oprindelig på Vestre Boulevard ud for Tivoli)

The dancing faun let the wine run down into the mouth of a ram’s horn. Vinsækken, he holds, is as empty as he himself is full. In Roman mythology, fauns and satyrs children of fertility gods Faunus and Fauna.

{One of the best sculptures of the second half of the 19th. century. Neo-Hellenistic school of sculpture – very impressive, of which the photo doesn’t prove, unfortuneately. The humorous aspect of all this is that the optical reproduction of gradated tones, and color that a photograph produces is at complete polar odds with the content of good sculpture. So even if this were a great picture – none of the aspects of complex geometric form can really be reproduced in a photograph. Also the reason that any artwork made ( referenced ) from a photograph is just a lesser version of the photo.}, blogger, PBP

An excellent Neo-Hellenistic sculpture that stands out in the broader history of European sculpture as noteworthy.

Lost the film with the decent pictures, this is a pretty bad representation, but this is one of the best sculptures of the second half of the 19th. century.

Kolberg. Andreas Johnsen Kolberg, sculptor, born in Copenhagen November 25, 1817, was the son of Character Teacher John Jantsen Kolberg (b. 1779, d. 1855) and Karen Johanne f. Simonsen (d. 1831). He started in his tenth year to go to the Academy, where Hetsch thought he was raising a builder in him; The boy had at first wanted to be a painter, but went though, when he in 1833 had been a student of Model School, should become models the won, as such, the less silver medal in March 1834. At the same time he started to work in Freund in his Workshop. In 1836 he received Prize money, in March 1837 the big silver medal and competed in the same year for the gold medal

without obtaining it. Next year he won again Prize money and in 1839 the small gold medal for assignment »Odysseus makes itself known for Eurykleia ‘. His Examen in anatomy, mathematics m. M. Went the other hand, less fortunate, and he had to take it on again before the gold medal customer handed him. In 1843 he won the great gold medal for “Boas and Ruth” (Ruth’s Book, 2, 8-9), and was so lucky once to get the Academy big Scholarship from it. January 1844. He traveled first for the autumn p. A . and came in September 1845 to Rome. In 1846 he received scholarship extended for one year from the day he had spent three years abroad, and one application for further extension was refused.
Kolberg came home in the beginning of 1849 and Academy arranged for a workshop to him. By contrast, it was not at all pleased with the work, he had performed in Rome and sent home: a statue ‘Theseus’, ‘the women at the tomb’ of Relief and a few other reliefs. They gave “no means no pleasing testimony to the artist’s Progress and Development” and the Academy recommended possible Public Works to better artists. However, Kolberg, however, been recommended to Frederik VII, who made him Inspector of his private collection of paintings, appointed him Professor (1850) and gave him funds to again travel to Italy. From this time his busts of the king o. Fl. As it seems, he traveled in 1854 to Rome, where he in 1857 returnees ‘A Drunken Faun’, of which he was agreeret of the Academy. At first he had some orders, partly to foreign countries, thus a relief, “Nedtageisen of the Cross’, which came to England, while the statue ‘The Hunter’, which was commissioned by an American, only caused him loss, because The customer went bankrupt. The royal grace began to fail him, and he lived some years in miserable circumstances in Rome until he Lehnsbaron O. D. Rosenørn Lehns Help came back to Denmark (1862). Here he exhibited “One Shepherd” (1861 belong. Count Moltke) and ‘EnBacchus “(1862 belong. Frederik VII), both executed in marble in Rome. The same year (1862) he exhibited a Sketch to a Frise ‘Christ’s entrance into Jerusalem’, which was intended for a church in Philadelphia; but one drawing to another Frise ‘hall to Calvary’, was not exhibited. He lived some years in the home, were (in 1866) it Ancher Legat, but went no further than northern Germany; he came back sick in soul and body, and died August 10, 1869 in Copenhagen. A Youth ‘Bacchant sitting on an Panther “(1834) was bought by Christian VIII

and left long in the Royal. Painting Collection Magazin. His activities as an artist did not respond to the ease with which he had gone Academy Schools through, and the disappointment, this was both for him and others, seemed oppressive to all his relations. One thought that had gone a talent lost, while truth, perhaps, was that his real talent had never stood in relation to the initial expectations.

FROM THE HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN BIOGRAPHY “THE LIFE OF HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN. DAY BY DAY“, WRITTEN BY DPHIL JOHAN DE MYLIUS:

1846

31 MARCH
Arrives in Rome – joyful to see the city once again (the diary: “Count Paar went looking for ladies and I went to my lodgings, calmly content. God, if only I could bless you!”). HCA stays in Rome for one month. Socialises e.g. with Ottilie von Goethe, a daughter-in-law of the poet, and reads fairy-tales aloud at a party held by her. Poses for the sculptor Andreas Kolberg, who makes a bust of him. HCA is not pleased with this bust (the diary, 27th April: too “materially perceived”) and protests in 1864 when Baroness Christine Stampe intends to order a cast of it, calling it a caricature and “fatal” (the diary, 22nd September). He is also drawn by the Minister Resident of Hanover in Rome August Kestner (a son of Werther’s Lotte, i.e. Charlotte Kestner).

Biografi:
Andreas Kolberg arbejdede i Freunds atelier, samtidig med at han besøgte Kunstakademiet, hvor han i løbet af et årti opnåede samtlige medaljer. Hans arbejder er således præget af nyklassicismen, som den udøvedes af generationen efter Thorvaldsen. Under sine Rom-ophold søgte han dog at efterligne den antikke skulpturs mere naturalistiske formsprog, som det f.eks. ses i hans drukne faun fra 1857. M.V. Brun beretter, at K. under arbejdet med Frederik VIIs og Grevinde Danners buster afslørede en sådan indiskretion om hoflivet, at han måtte opgive det videre arbejde efter de kongelige modeller. Han drog kort efter på sit andet Rom- ophold med støtte fra hoffet.
