Vernet made his reputation in Rome from 1734–1753, attracting an international clientele as a specialist in marine painting. In 1750 he painted a series of four oval 'Times of Day' destined for Joseph Leeson, later Lord Milltown. This painting is a rectangular replica of the fourth scene. Other Grand Tourists in Rome commissioned similar sets from Vernet in the 1750s. This painting was copied by Charles François Lacroix de Marseille.
