Comment on 23.9.1806
If Thorvaldsen asked Schubart to do this, it must have been done orally. There is no trace of his request in the correspondence with Schubart. However, Thorvaldsen had ample opportunity to get support from Charlotte Schimmelmann as he was executing the Baptismal Font, cf. A555,1, A555,2, A555,3, A555,4, for Brahetrolleborg Church, commissioned by her and Schubart; see more in the related article about the Baptismal Font.
