    Description

    Elmer Ellsworth Watercolor Portrait. 10" x 14" portrait on board of Colonel Ellsworth, titled "Col. E. Ellsworth 1861" and signed "T.D." It appears to be a large albumen photograph which the artist has colorized using watercolors. Quite well done. The verso has an albumen photograph of a framed collage of portraits of men, likely some sort of drinking club, titled: "The Last Man Brotherhood Instituted February the 16th 1856." We don't recognize any of these bon vivants.
