Colored print of a young boy dressed in a white sailor suit with a brimmed hat, facing slightly left. He stands with his back to the ocean with two sailing vessels vessels in the background. Ironically, this is probably a modified copy of the December 1846 portrait by Franz Xaver Winterhalter of a young Albert Edward, Prince of Wales and later King Edward VII of the United Kingdom. The original painting does not have the ships in the background, the prince faces in the opposite direction, and their are minor facial discrepancies and stylistic differences.
