Artists in the Family

geranium Sarah ForrerThere was much artistic talent in this family. Sarah Forrer, the sister of my ggg-grandmother did this botanical, and others, as well as many pen and ink or other grey-scale drawings. She is also the one who drew the sketch of the teakettleĀ in my previous post. on that – I wonder why she waited 49 years to try find the teakettle?

One of her daughter also had much talent, toured Europe (you’ll hear from those letters sometime in the future) and has a few smaller works in the Forrer-Woods-Peirce collection at the Dayton-Metro Library
