The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Comment on Omkring 1.2.1804

Probably the bust of A.P. Bernstorff, A209, which Herman Schubart commissioned in 1803, see letter of 12.11.1803 from Schubart to Thorvaldsen. The bust was finished in marble, A207, in a reduced version in the summer of 1806, see letter of 8.8.1806 from Thorvaldsen to Schubart. However, it never ended up with Schubart, probably for financial reasons, and today it is in Thorvaldsens Museum.
