The sitter (1721-1775) commissioned this piece at the same time that Copley was painting full-length oil portraits of him and his wife, Martha Swett, for their home in Marblehead, Massachusetts (Wadsworth Athenaeum, Hartford). Another version of the miniature is owned by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
