Signing of The Declaration of Independence Painting

click to enlarge

As noted in the last post, I recieved an email from Mr.R.W. who suggested that the Count might have been painted into John Trumbull's The Signing of The Declaration of Independence.

The person in question is to the right of Ben Franklin's elbow, sitting against the door.  Some people might ask: How do we go about investigating this?  56 people signed the Declaration of Independence.  In this painting, there are 47 people.  That leaves 9 people unaccounted for which means that the theory is still UNVERIFIED.

I took a look at some other famous paintings of the signing, but none of them have the full 56 patrons.
