Primary sources

  • Else Kai Sass: Thorvaldsens Portr√¶tbuster, Copenhagen 1963-65, Vol. I, p. 468-472 (assumes that the work was commissioned during Thorvaldsen’s stay in Naples September-October 1818).
  • Thiele III, p. 495 (on the basis of references to the carving of the bust in the workshop accounts, Thiele assumes that it was also commissioned in 1821, cf. accounts for September 1821 – September 1822 and 31.8.1822).
