Pierre Henri, Alexander Rose, ca. 1788, watercolor on ivory, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum purchase through the Catherine Walden Myer Fund, 1946.11.6
Born in Scotland, Alexander Rose (about 1733-?) immigrated with his family to the colonies before the Revolutionary War. He became a merchant and shipowner in Charleston, and an ardent patriot. The Roses have owned Kilravok (pronounced “Kilrock”) Castle, near Inverness, since it was built more than 750 years ago, and are distantly related to the Windsors of England.
