    Bonaparte left Spain in 1813, returned to Mortefontaine, just outside of Paris. In 1814, he went to Switzerland and then back to Paris before he left for good and began living in the United States, first renting a house in Philadelphia and then buying a large tract of land on Point Breeze in Bordentown, NJ, beginning in 1815. Sometime before 1845 the painting was sold to Lord Ashburton in New York.
