abstract

Art-historical partners J. A. Crowe (1851) and G. B. Cavalcaselle (1865) made individual surveys in Denmark. This paper speculates on their interactions with Danish expert N. L. Høyen. It focuses on Cavalcaselle’s Danish sketches (Marciana, Venice). It also offers new perspectives on G. F. Waagen’s stay in Copenhagen (1868). It expounds on the fortuna and conservation history of the Man of Sorrow by Mantegna, the alleged Portrait of Antonio Galli and other – mostly Valenti Gonzaga – paintings now in the Statens Museum for Kunst. It investigates the 19th-century criticism of draperies by Mantegna and Leonardo. It hypothesyses the identification of a Portrait of Thomas Gresham.
