Thorvaldsen possibly modeled Seinsheim's bust during his visit to Rome 1817-18, when he was a companion for Ludwig 1. of Bavaria. We are not sure whether it actually is Seinsheim or Count Gustav von Ingenheim, but there are apparently similarities with more recent portraits of Seinsheim. It is not known whether the bust was also made in marble. Karl August Joseph Maria, Count of Donat Seinsheim (17 February 1784 in Munich – 26 November 1864 in Munich) was the Bavarian Finance Minister and President of the Bavarian Chamber of Deputies (German: Präsident der Bayerischen Abgeordnetenkammer). images%2f0fb5093ad0c410af5d5b4c4f5a78b89bdc2d499d
About the author:
Thorvaldsens Museum opened on 18 September 1848 and was the first public museum building in Denmark. The characteristic museum building was built to exhibit the extensive life’s work of the sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844) and today still looks more or less as it did when it opened over 150 years ago. Thorvaldsens Museum also contains Thorvaldsen's drawings and sketches for sculptures and reliefs. In addition Thorvaldsen was a passionate collector, so the museum also exhibits his extensive collections of paintings from his own time and collections of artworks and objects from Greek, Roman and Egyptian antiquity. The museum also shows changing exhibitions that go into greater depth with aspects of the permanent collections, including contemporary art.
