Comment on 17.1.-14.2.1797

I.e. The Expulsion of Heliodorus from the Temple, probably Francesco Solimena’s (1657–1747) painting, 1725, in Gesù Nuovo.
Thorvaldsen himself had used the subject in the relief for which, in 1791, he got the small gold medal of the Academy, Heliodorus Driven out of the Temple, A829.
