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

Cf. Christian von Holst: Joseph Anton Koch. 1768-1839. Ansichten der Natur, Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, 1989, p. 11. See also the letter dated April 10, 1800, from Poul Scheel til Thorvaldsen, which mentions not only a female friend of Koch’s, Domenica Giusti, but presumably also Koch’s lover Maria Angela Sodi.
