Nicola Marschall was a native of Prussia who arrived in the Port of New Orleans in 1849. He travelled to the Alabama Black Belt, where he set up as a portraitist depicting members of the planter families who lived in central Alabama. Marschall's practice was centered in the communities of Greensboro and nearly Marion, which was also home to a military academy for boys. This portrait most likely documents one of the young men educated at Marion Institute.
