Description:
This is an outstanding pencil drawing of a young Fanny Ruschenberger that not only had a fine pen writing hand at the age of 10 but also had the budding artist's eye. The figure of the man, smoking a pipe and looking out at the harbor at the sail boat was her father. The work is simply stunning. Fanny Ruschenberger born May 27, 1844 died March 3, 1883. She wrote six diaries. The manuscript diary of Fanny Ruschenberger 1858-1881 is located at the University of Pennsylvania. Fanny Ruschenberger of Philadelphia was the daughter of a prominent Philadelphia physician, William Samuel Ruschenberger (1807-1895); she was an unmarried sewing teacher. Volume 1 of her diaries is a copybook record of church attendance, family visits and activities, social and cultural events, local and regional trips, and her teaching experience. Her diary and works are considered to be an important window into the social lives of the times. Dr. William Samuel Waithman Ruschenberger (4 September 1807 in Cumberland County, New… Read more
