The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Comment on 11.8.1804

The letter from Landini to Thorvaldsen is not known today (see the list of Letters Lost). The letter apparently contained an explanation why he had not progressed farther with the bust of Count Adam Gottlob Detlef Moltke, which Thorvaldsen had modelled 1803-04. The original model is in Thorvaldsens Museum, A212, the marble version in Kunsthalle in Kiel.
