Notice the ring on his right forefinger in the color image (nice, by the way), and then the ring on his little finger in the later photo (I had never noticed it before).

Do you have a date on the painting/painter?

Wiki says the artist is Clague. The link you sent IDs the portrait as Beauregard. What am I missing?

I was testing you, and my ability for complex thinking without coffee. Never mind. Nice find. :)

I hit enter too soon. I do not think that is Beauregard in the color image.

Some similarity, but see this:

OK–I have thought about this for a day or so. I do think the portrait is a picture of Beauregard, but not a very good one.
