Comment on Efter 15.6.1807

In these lines, Thorvaldsen outlines the working process in his workshop: He executes the model in clay, and then his assistants take over the intermediate processes until he can apply the finishing touches after the marble has been carved out of the rough, as he writes here.
See more about this in Thorvaldsen’s Workshop Practice.
