Mrs. Cleveland


A portrait in marble relief, by Margaret Foley. The museum has three likenesses of Mrs. Cleveland: a painting, a bust, and this relief. Two of the likenesses feature a flowering vine which the museum says are morning glories - possibly meaningful flowers to her or to her family in some way. While the blossoms could be morning glories, the leaf form seems wrong to me. Could they be trumpet vines? (And how would that change the unknown family symbolism?)
