A. Laurason

  • Jean Francois De Vallee, A. Laurason, ca. 1805, watercolor, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Mary Taylor, 1958.5.4

Luce Center Label

There is evidence to suggest that a man named A. Laurason worked for the Southern Pacific Railroad Company in New Orleans. However, the railroad that ran through New Orleans was not absorbed by Southern Pacific until the 1880s, so the man who worked for the railroad may have been a descendant of the gentleman in this portrait.
