Joseph Bonaparte, Comte de Survilliers
Adolph Maillard, Jr.
This pencil portrait is by Adolph Mailliard (b. 1819 in Bordentown, New Jersey), son of Bonaparte’s personal secretary, Louis Mailliard (b. 1795). It is believed that Adolph made the portrait on one of the many trips which Bonaparte and the Mailliards made to Europe. He sent the portrait as a gift to Mrs. Langhorne Thorne, the concierge at Point Breeze. Adolph settled in San Rafael, California in 1867.
