Anne Marie Carl-Nielsen (1863-1945) might be best known for her marriage to the Danish composer Carl Nielsen. But she was definitely was an artist in her own right. Her work was greatly acknowledged at her time, and she made way for many female artists so that they could educate and perform their art. She was the first woman in the world to undertake two of the most prestigious projects in the world of professional sculpture: an equestrian statue of a king (Christian IX of Denmark) and bronze doors for a cathedral (Ribe Cathedral). Paradoxically, while her extensive, tireless work in plaster and bronze has made Anne Marie Carl-Nielsen an inspiring role model for generations of Danish sculptors, it has not yet earned her a justified place in art history.
