Comment on 17.1.-14.2.1797

To the usually laconic Thorvaldsen, “rather good” seems great praise.
Thorvaldsen was so impressed by Tischbein’s works that he mentioned the works to, among others, Carl Ludwig Fernow, whom he met immediately after his arrival in Rome 8.3.1797. See letter of 11.3.1797 in Carl Ludwig Fernow: Römische Briefe an Johann Pohrt 1793-1798, Berlin 1944, p. 214.
