Scholarly Commentary

Production History

Although the picture was done in 1863, it was not bought until May 1866 (see DGR's letter to John Hamilton Trist, 31 May 1866, Fredeman, Correspondence, 66.110 ). The picture seems related to Belcolore, another portrait composition for a circular frame dating from 1863.
