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

The copies made by Koch reached Denmark together with Thorvaldsen’s own copies and Carstens’ original drawings. It has subsequently been debated which artist was responsible for which works. For more on this, see Gertrud With, “Et trekløver—Asmus Jacob Carstens, Joseph Anton Koch og Bertel Thorvaldsen i Rom,” in Stig Miss and Gertrud With (eds), Asmus Jacob Carstens og Joseph Anton Kochs værker i Thorvaldsens Museum, Copenhagen 2000, pp. 22-24.
