Countess Josephine Brunsvik was probably the most important woman to famous Pianist and composer Ludwig van Beethoven, as documented by at least 15 love letters he wrote her where he called her his "only beloved", being "eternally devoted" to her and "forever faithful.” Although his feelings were obviously reciprocated, Josephine was forced by her family to flee from his love in 1807. She would have lost the custodianship of her aristocratic children had she married a "commoner." This series depicts her, Josephine, holding on to the remnants of time, the love and memories lost.
