The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Comment on 6.8.1804

Lund was awarded a royal travelling scholarship 1804-06 and was informed of this in a letter of 19.5.1804 from the engraver J.F. Clemens (1748-1831). The letter is in the Manuscript Department, the Royal Library, NBD, and is reproduced in Leo Swane: J.F. Clemens. Biografi samt fortegnelse over hans kobberstik, Copenhagen 1929, p. 313.
However, Thorvaldsen was to enjoy Lund’s company until 1810 and again from 1816-19. Lund himself informed Thorvaldsen of the news in his letter of 13.7.1804.
