Comment on 7.2.1827

I.e. the original models for The Baptism of Christ, cf. A557 and The Institution of the Eucharist, cf. A558, which Thorvaldsen had executed during his Sojourn in Denmark, 1819-20, and which were now to be carved in marble for the Church of Our Lady, Copenhagen, cf. the related article Commission for the Church of Our Lady, Copenhagen. The information about the reliefs appears in the letter dated 7.5.1827 from C.F. Hansen to Thorvaldsen.
