Comment on 19.1.1828

Thorvaldsen had, in fact, been informed of the ship’s arrival in fairly good time, cf.:

  • Letter dated 17.9.1827 from C.F. Hansen to Thorvaldsen (the ship will arrive at Leghorn in January).

So it seems that Thorvaldsen is either prevaricating or only considers himself informed of the ship’s arrival by the last letters to arrive in Rome:

  • Letter dated 1.12.1827 from “Building Commission for Christiansborg Palace :/personer/slotsbygningskommissionen to Thorvaldsen.
