Back to 1824

Not earlier than April 1824

Richard Bingham’s marble copy of Venus with the Apple, cf. A12, is sent to England. The ship is wrecked near the English coast, but Venus escapes unharmed.

Primary sources

  • Letter dated 16.4.1824 from Bingham to Thorvaldsen (inquiring about the commissioned works, which have evidently not been sent).
