The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Back to 1825

Not later than 16.3.1825

Jean-François Champollion visits Thorvaldsen in his studios.

Primary sources

  • Hermione Hartleben: Champollion. Sein Leben und sein Werk, Berlin 1906, p. 557.
  • Hermione Hartleben: Lettres de Champollion le jeune I, Paris 1909, p. 189; the visit is mentioned in a letter dated 16.3.1825 to Champollion’s brother, so the visit may have taken place some days before.
