SIGRID HOWELL

Like all of Olga and Folke's children, Sigrid was talented. This drawing was a gift to her sister Mary whom she and the other siblings were truly devoted to. Mary had an angel's temperament and sweetness my mother told me.


I know that Sigrid had had an exhibition downtown Gothenburg before she moved to America in 1939. The little advertisement mentioned decorated items including Chinese lacquer work. I am not sure if she continued doing this in America, but if so, please send me (Leif) some photos.
