Comment on Jason and the Hope Commission

For example, the historical painter J. L. Lund, a friend of Thorvaldsen’s, had lost his first large historical painting in 1807, when it was confiscated by the English on its return trip to Denmark. For further details, see the letter from Lund dated 11.8.1804 and the explanatory note on Lund’s Malerie [painting].
