The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Comment on 6.8.1804

Besides Thorvaldsen’s wish to know how far Landini had got with his carving of the bust of Adam Gottlob Detlef Moltke, A212, cf. above, the fragment indicates that Thorvaldsen also wanted to prolong Landini’s employment for another month. This reveals part of the contents of the now lost letter from Thorvaldsen to Landini, see the list of lost letters.
