Theresa Moran Campau
Theresa Campau, mother of Louis Campau, is depicted as an elderly woman in her portrait. She wears a black shawl over a black dress, and a ruffled or pleated day cap that ties beneath her chin covers her grey hair, parted in the middle. A round, miniature portrait of a soldier is on the table in the lower right corner, possibly meant to represent her husband who died in 1858. A gilded, hand-carved wooden frame surrounds the portrait.
