Abstract

Bienaimé states that the sculptor Andrea Bardi has worked for 47 days on the marble version of Thorvaldsen’s Christ, cf. A82. Bienaimé is completely satisfied with Bardi’s work. Bienaimé now awaits Thorvaldsen’s last instructions concerning the completion of the sculpture.

Carrara 22. 7bre 1828.

Certifico io sotto scritto come il Sigre. Andrea Bardi Scultore avendo impiegato giornate 47 a ripassare la statua Rappresentante il Salvatore oppera dell’Sigre. Cavaliere Torwaldson, e queste avendole impiegate tanto nel ripassare i Capelli, è maschera torso, e braccio e pieghe, che mi à pienamente sodisfatto del suo lavoro, meno che le correzioni, che mi veranno indicate dal prelodato Sigre. Cavaliere Torwaldson
ed in fede

Pietro Bienaimé

General Comment

Denne erklæring dokumenterer formentlig, at den i værkstedsregnskaberne ofte nævnte Bardi havde fornavnet Andrea. Hans fulde navn har hidtil været misforstået eller ukendt, jf. Andrea Bardis biografi, ligesom det af erklæringen fremgår, at han var billedhugger, ikke stenhugger.
