Mette Marie Storm was the notorious Faaborg-merchant Poul Jacobsen Kinafarer's wife. The painting has been reproduced in several contexts, but never before in colour. In its own right, the reproduction above can be said to be a first performance. For many decades the painting has been considered disappeared and possibly lost. Fortunately the painting has now emerged - and in the possession of a descendant of Mette Marie Storm. Now the beautiful painting is hanging as the centre of an important exhibition of prominenty Faaborg citizens of the 1700's in the Faaborg City Museum.
