Comment on 18.6.1806

I.e. the five statues that either had been or were being executed for the commission of Irina Vorontsova, Venus (the early, smaller version of the figure which was only resumed 1813-16, cf. A12); Bacchus, A2; Ganymede, A41; Apollo, A3; Cupid and Psyche, A28.
There is more about this in the related article Vorontsova’s Commission.
