Comment on Medio april 1804

The Russian Princess Jevdokija Ivanovna Golitsyna.
It is not known whether Golitsyna commissioned any works from Thorvaldsen, but it might be the commission of her own portrait, A304 and/or the portrait of her nephew Ivan Vorontsov, possibly A302.
It might also be that Thorvaldsen or the copyist has confused Golitsyna with her sister Countess Vorontsova, who, with her large commission of five statues at the beginning of 1804, was one of the first “to commission some work” from Thorvaldsen.
Regarding this, see the related article about Vorontsova’s Commission.
