The Thorvaldsens Museum Archives

Comment on Jason and the Hope Commission

It should be borne in mind that this number covers scudi from the period 1820 to 1827 indiscriminately, without taking into account changes in the currency’s value. Nor has this number been normalized to the value of a scudo in 1803, the year that Thorvaldsen had entered into his original contracts with both Hope and Finelli & Keller.
