I am interested in tracing the Hoyas family because my Grandfather, Cherubino Kirchmayr, was a portrait painter and painted the Hoyas family in the late 1800's. I have a photograph of the painting and there are two lists of names on the back. The first is Countess Leopoldine, Countess Margurite, Countess Lilian, Countess Ella, Countess Camilla, Count Edgar and Count Alick. There is a second list I think saying these are Count George Hoyas Children: Prince Herbert Bismark, Countess Plessen, Count Edgar Hoyas, Count Alick Hoyas, Countess Penentlow, Countess Ella Hoyas and Mrs. Charlie Short. What I am trying to do is try to find out where this painting is so it can be catalogued. I would very much like to contact some member of the Hoyas family.
