Dahlerup, Jens Vilhelm (1836–1907). Danish architect. A pupil of Hetsch and Nebelong, he was also influenced by the works of T. von Hansen and Schinkel, but turned more to a rich Italian Renaissance style, persuaded in that direction by the works of Semper. His reputation was quickly established, and he designed numerous important buildings: among them the Agriculture School at Lyngby, the Royal Theatre, Copenhagen (1872–4—with Ove Petersen), the Pantomime Theatre, Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen (1870s), the New Carlsberg Brewery Building (1880–3), the Jesuskirken at Valby, the Royal Museum of Art (1888–95—with Georg Møller), the Glyptoteket (1891–5), and many private houses in and around Copenhagen. The Vejlefjord Sanatorium (1899) was also built to his designs. He was one of the last of the academic architects of Historicism in Denmark, but something of a virtuoso in his use of that architectural language.
