Joseph Hauber painted this portrait of his sister, Sophia, in 1828. She was part of my grandfather’s collection and this painting always hung in my childhood home. Today, more than a year after moving in, we finally gave her a most important place in our home - after we veeeery carefully made a few minor repairs to the old and delicate frame. 

I think she looks beautiful. 

Welcome home (again), Sophia!

Thank you, Margaret!

What a perfect place for it! (And what an OLD frame, my word!) Is Sophia an ancestor?

No, she’s the sister of Joseph Hauber, the artist. My grandfather was an art collector, but not an artist.
