I.e. Koop’s painting Vola Appears before for Thor from 1823, Akademiraadet. The Royal Academy of Fine Arts, KS 104. The oil sketch of this painting was Koop’s contribution to a competition arranged in Copenhagen in 1821 in order to promote the themes of Norse mythology. Koop won second prize for his sketch, cf. H. R. Baumann: Hermann Ernst Freunds Levned ved Victor Freund, Copenhagen 1883, p. 82. For more about the interest in these themes, see the related article Norse Mythology.
