Goethe¬īs Mother

Georg Oswald May: Catharina Elisabeth Goethe
 

 

By the window, above her writing-cum-dressing table, is a portrait in pastels of Goethe's mother by Georg Oswald May; to the left next to the door is a posthumous portrait of his father. The wall cupboard contains porcelain that belonged to Frau Goethe. The lids on the cups prevented an unpleasant 'skin' forming on her favourite drink, hot chocolate.
