The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Comment on Medio april 1804

Beyond the honour of having received the grant, Thorvaldsen may here be referring to the decorations for the rebuilding of Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen, in which both Nicolai Abildgaard and Herman Schubart had promised to involve Thorvaldsen in letters of 17.1.1804 and 21.1.1804 respectively, see the related article about The Commission for Christiansborg.
