Footnotes

  • Alexander Trippel (1744-1793)
    Moved to Rome from The Copenhagen academy of art from where he had begun his training as a sculptor and artist in 1763. Trippel was influenced by the classical poses and sculptures of ancient Rome and along with the artist Canova moved away from the style of rococo and became one of the early proponents for Neoclassicism in Rome. For his achievements in classical sculpture he was given honorary membership of the Prussian Academy of Arts.
