Comment on 6.4.1833

In a letter dated 26.2.1833, Christian (8.) Frederik had asked Thorvaldsen to buy an antique vase from the antique Etruscan town of Vulci for him. In the years following 1828, the archaeological finds from the town were sold by the French politician Lucien Bonaparte – he owned the area surrounding the town of Vulci.
