Comment on 4.5.1829

This characterization of Høyer agrees with Abildgaard’s in his letter dated 14.8.1806: “Høyer is a good honest person without guile, help him when you can, I am sure he will be grateful. It is a pity that he is too timid, what can be done by diligence, he will achieve, but you must instill a little courage and boldness in him, and do not let him spend too much time on the same painting.“
