The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Back to 1797

Presumably autumn 1797

A.P. Bernstorff, A208, reworked version of A856.

Primary sources

  • Draft letter dated late 1797 from Thorvaldsen to Abildgaard (from this it appears that the marble version of the bust is far advanced, so the original plaster, A208, must have been completed earlier).

Other references

  • Else Kai Sass: Thorvaldsens Portr√¶tbuster, Copenhagen 1963-65, Vol. I, p. 36, 37, 40, 42, 43, 45-51.
