The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Comment on 4.4.1800

According to the instructions of the Academy of 23.8.1796, Thorvaldsen had to send samples of his work home to Copenhagen. Recently, in March 1800, he had sent two crates to Leghorn, addressed to Nicolai Abildgaard, see letter of 4.4.1800 to the latter. Due to unfortunate circumstances, these two crates were delayed and did not arrive in Copenhagen until 1802, see the related article about Transportation of Crates.
