Although this painting bears Peter Monamy's signature below the buoy on the right it is unlikely that he was responsible for more than the marine background, since he is not otherwise known to have painted portraits. The figure of Berkeley is therefore assumed to be painted by an unidentified copyist, based on Kneller's 'kit-cat' half-length of about 1710, now in the National Portrait Gallery. He is shown in three-quarter-length, to right, wearing a red velvet coat laced with gold and a brown full-bottomed wig.
