Charles Bruce

Charles Bruce, a wealthy planter who built Staunton Hill in Charlotte County, is the subject of this miniature watercolor portrait painted about 1850 by George Lethbridge Saunders. This is one of two portraits--the other image depicts Bruce's wife, Sarah Alexander Seddon Bruce—that were probably displayed in a double frame that is now separated.
