The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Comment on 7.2.1827

In his letter dated 24.11.1826, C.F. Hansen”:/personer/hansen-c-f had expressed a concern that the cornice might not be able to bear the group of sculptures if they were cast in bronze. Here then, Thorvaldsen suggests that the group be fastened to the wall rather than to the cornice.
