Description

“Habors tilbagekomst fra slaget, og hans modtagelse ved kong Sigars hof”. Habor's return from battle, and his reception at the court of King Sigar. Draft. Signed and dated J. L. Lund 1813 and with colour notes from the artist. Later inscribed on underlying paper “Habor & Signe. Medlemsbillede 1814”. Pencil and red crayon on paper laid on paper. Squared for transfer.

The drawing is a draft for Lund's reception piece for The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts from 1813, which was exhibited at Charlottenborg in 1814 as no. 2. On the underlying paper is later inscribed (n Danish): “Habor and Signe. Reception piece 1814”, which is based on a misunderstanding of the motif.
