    Your “Self-portrait 1881” was not painted by Nicola Marschall. I wrote a book on Marschall’s bio in German. Wolfgang Ulbrich, Nicola Marschall (1829 – 1917) Ein Maler aus St. Wendel im amerkianischen Sueden, St. Ingbert 2012, (Roehrig Universitaetsverlag)

    My grandmother’s best friend in Louisville KY, was Nicola Marschall’s granddaughter – who gave her a lovely portrait of – I believe – Nicola’s wife. Whoever it is, it’s a jewel that I now own, and cherish

      As I wrote a book on Marschall I would be interested in Geriler’s portrait (in a photo mail to me). I am sure I can tell you whose portrait you really own. I am also in contact with the descendants.

        Hi Wolfgang, I’d be glad to do that if you can figure a way to get me your email address. I’ve been in touch with some folks in Birmingham, AL, who feel it’s likely his wife Mattie, which is what family lore has always been. Yes, I’m also in touch with the descendants, who have been friends since childhood. They’re not sure about who it is.

    Hi Geriler, my e-mail for a contact is My book (in German) but with 40 photos of Marschall portraits and US documents in available on the net. Owsley has got it. Title: Nicola Marschall – Ein Maler aus St. Wendel in den amerikanischen Südstaaten.
