Eleonore von Beuning

Eleonore von Beuning

The von Beuning family home was a place of refuge for Beethoven during his young life in Bonn.  He remained close with Stephan von Beuning for most of his life (save for those periods - some extended - where the two were estranged, for various reasons).

No known sketch or portrait of Eleonore von Beuning, or her mother Helene, survives.  The best contemporary evidence we have are two silhouettes of the Von Beuning family which are maintained at the Beethoven-Haus, Bonn. 

The silhouette shown here depicts Eleonore (on the right) having tea with her mother, Helene (on the left).
