An of the ccollection at Syracuse University

Finding aid created by: MRC
Date: 2 Feb 2018

Biographical History

Nothing is known of the artist who created these etchings, other than her name as it appears on the art. There is a Sophie Schneider (1866-1942) who was a German painter and artist. However, as she would have been only 14 years old at the time these were made, it seems unlikely that these are her work.
