The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Comment on History of the Archives

Probably based on the account of this by the friend of his youth Peder Horrebow Haste in: “Bidrag til Thorvaldsens Levnet og Characteristik”, in: Archiv for Historie og Geographie XVI, 1824, p. 370. In the introduction to his first biography of Thorvaldsen, Thiele says that Haste’s account is one of two essential sources for the portrayal of Thorvaldsen’s youth, and so it must be assumed that the information comes from it, Thiele 1831, p. XVII.
