This sketch came to the society mounted in an album of sketches and engravings by Thomas S. Cummings and various other nineteenth-century American artists. The subject was originally identified as the Marquis de Lafayette (1757-1834); however, the drawing is clearly copied from Henry Inman's portrait of Colonel Fish and probably dates from the period of Inman's and Cummings's partnership.
Due to ongoing research, information about this object is subject to change.
