The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Comment on 18.6.1806

I.e. the works for Christiansborg Palace, see the “related article “:/artikler/bestillingen-til-christiansborg regarding this. As he goes on to say, Thorvaldsen had been promised commissions for the palace already at the beginning of 1804, so here he is asking Abildgaard, a little impatiently, to try to find out what is happening in the matter.
Thorvaldsen’s cohabitant C.F. Høyer was a little more direct in his request to Abildgaard to secure commissions for Thorvaldsen, see his letter of 18.6.1806.
