Description:
N. A. Abildgaard, b. Copenhagen 1743, d. Frederiksdal 1809 "Bistået af Klio vækker arveprins Frederik den sovende Fama". With the help of Clio the heir presumptive Frederik awakens the sleeping Fama. Build-up. C. 1783. Signed N. Abildgaard. Oil on canvas. 38 x 30 cm. The Museum of National History Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerød owns the final painting with the measurements 115 x 93 cm from 1783. Literature: "Kunst i Privat Eje", 1945, vol. 3, mentioned and reproduced p. 245. Provenance: Mr Thomsen. Mrs head of department Sophus Sørensen, Helsingør. Clio, the mythical Muse of History holding her attributes, the scroll and the torch, helping the heir presumptive to create "Mindelunden" (The Memorial Grove) in Jægerspris. One of the memory pillars is seen in the background. Heir presumptive Frederik had part of the park at Jægerspris Castle laid out for a memorial grove ("Mindelunden") to remember people of merit in the Danish history. The sculptor Johannes Wiedewelt made the memory pillars. Today the "Mindelunden" is still worth a visit. Patrick Kragelund, "Abildgaard. Kunstneren mellem oprørerne", 1999, vol. I, p. 124-126, discusses the motif and writes (in Danish): "With her torch Clio illuminates the achievements of our forefathers, and the Prince sees to it that Fama is trumpeting out the knowledge of famous persons in the history of Denmark, Norway and Holstein".
