Augusta C.Wehner was sister to William Wehner (1847-1928)
I am William Wehner's biographer
I am writing the first book from the American point of view about 19th century rotunda panoramas. These were the biggest paintings in the world, 50 x 400=20,00 square feet, housed in their own rotundas which were 16-sided polygons. Chicago in 1893 had 6 panorama companies and 6 panorama rotundas. My great aunt, Mathilde Georgine Schley (1864-1941) was an artist-model in the Wehner studio in downtown Milwaukee 1885-88
