This miniature was painted after a portrait by Thomas Sully, who in turn was copying a painting by the Italian artist Andrea Appiani (1754-1817). Appiani’s painting Napoleon in Milan, in the Napoleonic Museum in Cuba, was used on a commemorative stamp, commissioned in 1969 by the Cuban Postal Administration. Conservation of this miniature was made possible through a generous grant provided by the Smithsonian Women’s Committee.
