The sitter (1814-1870) was the father of Emilie de Loosey (Mrs Theodore Havemeyer) and Blanche de Loosey (Mrs Charles Oelrichs).

This picture was presumably painted for Mrs. Theodore Havemeyer. It was probably painted from a photograph or miniature. It was the only picture from the bequest of all the Havemeyer family portraits accepted by New York Historical Society.
