The work was painted for Philip, 2nd Earl Stanhope, and was bequeathed by his son, the 3rd Earl, to one Deane Franklin Walker. In 1860, according to correspondence between Sellers and the 5th Earl Stanhope in 1953, the painting had been returned to the family, and hung again at Chevening (now the official residence of the British Foreign Secretary).
