The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Comment on 29.4.1823

This commendatory passage about Freund’s works of Norse mythology has, surprisingly enough, been deleted from the final letter, which, unlike this draft, is written by Thorvaldsen himself. See the related article Norse Mythology for more about Thorvaldsen’s attitude to Norse mythology as a subject for the visual arts.
