The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Comment on 30.1.1807

At this time, Thorvaldsen’s plan was apparently to finish his commissions in Rome and then return to Denmark. Six months before he had informed Schubart of something similar in letter of 8.8.1806:
”...I shall try to finish my work as soon as possible and after that return to Copenhagen…”
See also below, where the return journey is mentioned as a possibility.
However, all this changed as more commissions were received, see more about this in Thorvaldsen’s Continuance in Rome.
