of the HMPS Art Collection
HMPS is the owner of an extensive collection of exquisite 19th-century decorative arts including portraits and other period paintings, furniture, silver, porcelain and textiles. This remarkable portrait of Octavia Walton, titled “Miss Walton of Florida,” by Thomas K. Sully, was painted upon her debut in 1833. She would later be best known in Mobile -- and the world -- as Madame Octavia Celestine Valentine Walton LeVert. Hear her story and that of many other Mobilians as part of the Oakleigh tour.
