The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Comment on 29.4.1823

I.e. the carving in marble of the busts of Christian (8.) Frederik, cf. A753, and his spouse Caroline Amalie, cf. A716. They had been modelled by Thorvaldsen during the royal couple’s stay in Rome in 1821 but were executed by Freund under Thorvaldsen’s supervision. For more about the working practice in Thorvaldsen’s workshops, see the related article on Thorvaldsen’s Workshop Practice.
