Comment on 25.5.1820

Thorvaldsen had promised the Building Commission for Christiansborg Palace to accept the commission for twelve apostles for the Church of Our Lady, originally given to Freund, on the condition that Freund was offered other work. Instead, Freund was given the task of decorating the main staircases of Christiansborg Palace with several sculptures and reliefs and of executing the Four Evangelists for Christiansborg Palace Chapel.
