In the Catalogue of paintings Drawings and Engravings by William Grimaldi, which was privately printed in 1873 there are only two miniatures recorded as being painted in 1793 and both of them were Ladies. This suggests that the sitter in this portrait may not have paid for it and hence there is no record of it in the catalogue.

Grimaldi is one of the leading artists working at the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th century being employed as Enamel Painter to George IV.
