Comment on Thorvaldsen's Works at Hams Hall

The terracotta frieze that was sold at auction in 1997 by Christie’s in New York was produced in Denmark around 1855, by Rasmus Peter Ipsen. It can therefore be excluded for consideration, assuming that the Hams Hall frieze was installed as claimed during the renovation of the manor house in 1836-1841. Cf. Christie’s, N.Y., East, March 19, 1997, Lot 205 / Sale 7993.
