Excerpt from Thorvaldsen: His Life and Works
IN publishing this work, I should deprive myself Of a pleasure and fail in a duty, did I not inscribe on the first page the names Of those generous strangers who have so kindly aided me in my labors: Herr Professor Thiele, whose publications are a mine of invaluable, authentic information; Herr Professor Miiller, author of an excellent catalogue Of the Thorvaldsen Museum; the venerable Professor Hoyen, to whom I am indebted for many useful communications; Herr Emile Wolff, a pupil Of Thorvaldsen, still greatly under the inﬂuence Of the master's teachings; and lastly my friends, Valdemar Hoskimr, Captain Of Engineers, and Herr Fr; Schumacher, attaché to the minister of war, who, in interesting themselves in my researches at Copenhagen, ren dered my task easy and agreeable.
The Baroness von Stampe, to the great profit of my book, very kindly sent for me, and in the most touching manner communicated to me all her reminiscences Of the illustrious artist whose Old age had been protected and made happy by her filial affection. I beg leave respectfully to express to her here my deep gratitude.
