Comment on May 1817

It did not take place all that soon. Knudtzon did not receive the reliefs Hector with Paris and Helen, 1809, cf. A499, and Cupid and Bacchus, 1810, cf. A408, and the busts until the spring of 1828, cf. his letter of 14.5.1828.
Knudtzon received the third relief, Venus, Mars and Cupid in the Smithy of Vulcan, cf. A419, shortly before 16.6.1829, cf. letter of this date and workshop accounts of January to May 1828.
