ABOUT THIS PIECE Neoclassicism movement Painter Nicolai Abildgaard's Philoctetes was created in 1775 and the painting is in National Gallery of Denmark, Copenhagen. The size of the work is 123 x 175,5 cm and is made of oil on canvas. From 1772 Abildgaard spent five years in Rome thanks to a scholarship granted by the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. It was while in Rome that he created this depiction of the legendary hero Philoctetes, whose screams of pain caused by a festering snakebite made his comrades-in-arms abandon him on a Greek island during the Trojan war. The dominant and deeply rooted movement within figure painting at this time was neoclassicism with its emphasis on self-command and calm. Abildgaard challenges this pattern with his depiction of a body convulsively curved around an axis of pain; a body that feels like it is forcefully restrained within the picture field with its tense musculature and twisted limbs. The Artist: Danish neoclassical painter Nicolai Abildgaard (1743 – 1809) studied in Rome, where he was primarily influenced by antique sculpture and Roman wall paintings.
