Comment on Thorvaldsen and His Ganymede and the Eagle

See Andersen Feldberg, Denmark Delineated (Edinburgh, 1821), p. 33: (Winter of 1818-1819, the statue as for Lord Gower. The Woronzoff Ganymede is also noted, as purchased, and a third standing figure—presumably the 1816 variant—as in progress). Also, A. W. Kephalides, Reise Durch Italien und Sicilien (1818), p. 158 (the statue noted).
