Danish baron and diplomat in Holland, Spain and Naples, Italy, from 1801 to 1821, when he had to return to Denmark. Thorvaldsen was on friendly terms with the Schubart family from 1804 and on several occasions he visited them at their country seat of Montanero outside Livorno. It was there that this bust was modelled.
