The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Comment on History of the Archives

On some of the works Thorvaldsen had hidden away, Thiele also writes in the letter to Collin that it is inconceivable how Thorvaldsen has stowed them out of the way in holes that were only accessible with the help of candles, but that no one but he himself would have done it with such ruthlessness. Letter from Thiele to Collin of 14.7.1844, Annexe to Protocol: Thorvaldsens Museums Oprettelse, Årene 1840-44, no. 216. Thorvaldsens Museum Archives.
