General Comment

Thorvaldsen’s greeting is found in Andreas Dobert Kalleberg’s album, N261, which is in Thorvaldsens Museum. In 1804-1807, Kalleberg was travelling in Germany, Italy, and Greece with the architect Jacob Laurids Thrane. Kalleberg got to know Thorvaldsen in Rome around 1805. The date of Thorvaldsen’s greeting in Kalleberg’s album probably documents the date of Kalleberg’s and Thrane’s departure from Rome.
