Touched by the landlords sister
exhibition at the music festival Näshulta Culturedays
Hanebergs säteri, Sweden
26 june
with Peter Ekström, Karin Johansson, Ulf Lernhammar,
Lennart Mossberg, Norman Sandén,
Marja-leena Sillanpää, Kelvin Sommer.

Marja-leena Sillanpää:
The baroness Cornelia Florentina Hildebrand was born
1715 in Holland and died  1768 at the Haneberg's manor.
When I looked at the portrait of her, I understood
that it is her from whom I like to continue.
Afterwards, I tried to find information, but about the
women there is usually nothing besides whose daughter
or sister she was and to whom she was mother. So it's
unclear what's caught me, but possibly the fact that
it is said she ordered chocolate regularly.
The portrait was painted by J.H. Scheffel.
Otherwise it´s hanging at Haneberg's manor, Sörmland.
