Amigoni trained as a painter probably in Venice and after a period working in Germany came to England in 1729 where he remained until 1739. Besides a number of highly decorative, mythological canvases he painted portraits, including some of Queen Caroline (d. 1737) and other members of the royal family and the court.

This is one of a series of over forty portrait drawings attributed to Amigoni, a few of which can be associated with paintings he produced while in England.
