The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Comment on Jason and the Hope Commission

Cf. Brun, R√∂misches Leben, op. cit., vol. II, pp. 101-102. Brun’s account of the festivities continues with descriptions of the participants, decorations, etc. For example, Brun’s daughter, the renowned Ida Brun performed a pantomime, in the course of which she crowned Thorvaldsen with a laurel wreath.
