Unknown Artist - Albert Thaddeus Fairbanks

Unknown artist
Albert Thaddeus Fairbanks, undated
oil on canvas, 35 ½ x 21 ½ inches
Gift of Mrs. Henry Fairbanks

Albert Fairbanks was the son of Athenaeum founder Horace Fair­banks' cousin Henry. Albert died at age fifteen. This portrait was probably painted during the sitter's lifetime as a symbol of his family's pride, but was likely presented to the Athenaeum by his mother after his death as a tribute to his memory.
