The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Comment on 6.6.1807

This amount was an advance that Thorvaldsen had requested in letter of 16.2.1807 in order to be able to start on the works which C.F. Hansen / the Building Commission for Christiansborg Palace had commissioned for Christiansborg Palace and for the Town Hall and Courthouse in Copenhagen i København.
The advance had been granted in letter of “16.5.1807”:/dokumenter/m21807,nr.8, so the money was on its way from Denmark to Italy.
