Comment on The Legacy of Thorvaldsen in 19th-Century Warsaw

Thorvaldsens Museum in Copenhagen knows of no bust by Thorvaldsen by the title “An Albanian Woman”. However, the work could be a copy of Thorvaldsen’s bust of Vittoria Caldoni (inventory number A279 and A886, Thorvaldsens Museum, Copenhagen), a cherished model from Albano close to Rome. People from Albano were often called “Albanians” in Thorvaldsen’s circles.
