The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Comment on The country bumpkin and the donkey-rider in the service of art and freedom

Both Koch and Thorvaldsen were among the many coauthors responsible for the critical tract Drei Schreiben aus Rom gegen Kunstschreiberei in Deutschland, Dresden 1833 (https://sammlungen.ulb.uni-muenster.de/ob/content/titleinfo/587088). Thorvaldsen was dyslexic, and presumably for that reason, had no desire to write any more than absolutely necessary; cf. Jørn Lund, Sproget i Thorvaldsens dagbog og tidlige breve in Meddelelser fra Thorvaldsens Museum, Copenhagen 2008, p. 51-60, along with Kira Kofoed, Thorvaldsens tale- og skriftsprog, arkivet.thorvaldsensmuseum.dk, 2009.
