Jason with the Golden Fleece (A52), (1803), Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770 - 1844), made in Rome, marble, height: 242 cm. Thorvaldsen museum (Copenhagen, Denmark). Made with ReMake and ReCap from AutoDesk.
Jason with the Golden Fleece was Thorvadsen’s breakthrough work, and it made his name in Roman cultural circles in the early 19th century. It is said that the English art collector, writer, banker, and connoisseur Thomas Hope saw the statue in plaster in Thorvaldsen’s sutido close to the Palazzo Barberini and immediately ordered it to be re-created in marble.
