Comment on 4.10.1801

Thorvaldsen’s good friend, the Danish architect C.F.F. Stanley. In 1795, he had won the large gold medal of the Academy of Fine Arts, and in 1800, he won the large travelling scholarship in competition with three other architects. Abildgaard mentions that the competition is going to take place in his letter dated 21.7.1800.
However, Stanley did not leave until August 1802, see receipt dated 3.8.1802 from Hinrich Thomsen to C.F.F. Stanley.
