The Portraits of Albert Gallatin (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Portraits of Albert Gallatin The statement made in A Great Peace Maker, the Diary of James Gallatin, that the Munier Romilly portrait was painted in Geneva in 1 815 is certainly incorrect. It is the portrait of a man about twenty years older. For one thing, in the miniature by Rath, which is dated 181 5, Galla tin's hair is black, while in the Munier - Romilly it is white. At the moment of going to press I am informed that this picture is believed to be owned by Madame Ernest Dunant, of Geneva.
