Mette Marie Storm was the notorious Faaborg-merchant Poul Jacobsen Kinafarer's wife. This painting is probably the most treasured artefact in the family. It is part of an ancestor gallery which until recently belonged to a Canadian descendant who has now donated the gallery to the cultural museum in Faaborg, the home town of Poul Kinafarer and Mette Marie Storm. If you wish, you may participate in a project to bring back the paintings and preserve them.
