Comment on 8.8.1806

The three bust were the marble portraits of Herman Schubart, A219, Jacqueline Schubart, A220 and A.P. Bernstorff, A207.
Schubart had commissioned the busts of himelf and his wife during Thorvaldsen’s stay at Montenero during the summer of 1804.
The bust of Bernstorff was commissioned already in 1803, cf. letter of 12.11.1803 from Schubart to Thorvaldsen.
