Emil Baerentzen (1799-1868) of Baerentzen & Co. Copenhagen, Denmark copied the image with some slight variations and sold their interpretation of the lithograph throughout Europe. It was one of dozens of variations of the original by Lemercier, Bernard et C. Paris
Funny, he almost looks a little Danish in this portrait.
This illustration was included in the lecture "The many faces of Daguerre" presented by Matt Isenburg at the Daguerreian Society Symposium (2009).
