Back to 1803

Beginning of 1803

Herman Schubart arrives in Rome and meets Thorvaldsen, probably through Georg Zoëga.

Primary sources

  • See Herman Schubart’s biography (Thiele I, p. 195, makes the unlikely assumption the meeting did not take place until the early autumn of 1803).
  • Letter dated 12.11.1803 from Schubart to Thorvaldsen (“… the friendship we recently formed in Rome …”).
