Portrait of Josefa Sandoval Muro de Amador

Josefa Sandoval Muro de Amador Garay, “Pepita”, wife of historian Elias Amador, mother of Elias Oliver Amador Sandoval. “Pepita”, was outspoken and lived to be in her eighties.  She would say: let him (her) roll with the ball of fools...”que ruede con la bola de tontos”, meaning “I do not partake from such nonsense”.  She was very smart and an individualist.  Her picture, an oil portrait of her in a modest blue plaid dress, is a vivid portrayal of an intelligent, knowing, elderly woman who has seen it all, by her son Elias Oliver.
