Sophia of the Palatinate, more commonly referred to as Sophia of Hanover, was born October 14th 1630 and was the eldest, surviving child of Elizabeth of Bohemia, daughter of James I. Sophia of Hanover was the only suitable choice as heir to the British throne and was made heiress presumptive by parliament in 1701. It was necessary that a Protestant took the throne and since Queen Mary died without children and Queen Anne’s children did not survive past infancy the honor was settled upon "the most excellent Princess Sophia, electress and duchess-dowager of Hanover” and “the heirs of her body, being Protestant”.

Happy 125th birthday to Thomas Hart Benton! His painting Romance is a visitor favorite—celebrate by seeing it in person.
A painter and muralist celebrated for his regional scenes of daily life in the southern, midwestern, and western United States, Thomas Hart Benton was committed to portraying images of progress and satisfaction in the American heartland. Born to a family of statesmen, Benton was a patriot who saw his art as a means to generate social and political reform. His nostalgic and uplifting scenes of hard work, self-reliance, and individualism garnered broad popular appeal in post–World War I America. This work, painted when the artist was at the midpoint of his life, provides a lyrical view of a young couple on a relaxed evening stroll. Drawing on his knowledge of both Old Master techniques and modernist ideas, which he had gleaned from several years spent studying in Paris, Benton crafted a lively composition whose rhythmic alignment of forms conveys a sense of poignant familiarity
Thomas Hart Benton, Romance, 1931-32, tempera and oil varnish glazes on gesso panel on board, Gift of Mari and James A. Michener, 1991.
