Jerome N. Bonaparte

This 1876 portrait of Jerome Napoleon "Bo" Bonaparte by John Badour hangs in the Museum of the Maryland Historical Society Museum in Baltimore Maryland. He was the son of Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte of Baltimore and Jerome Bonaparte, Napoleon's younger brother.
 "Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte, Elizabeth {Patterson Bonaparte}'s son, was the first president of the Maryland Club in Baltimore, a men's social club, of which members represented some of the most prominent business and political figures in Maryland history. This painting, executed posthumously from a photograph, was undertaken in 1876 by John Dabour, a French-trained portrait artist who settled in Baltimore that same year." -- Maryland Historical Society
