Juliana Margaretta Waltersdorff (1769–1819) married Cornelius Hendrickson Kortright (1763/4–1818). This portrait may date from close to their marriage. The couple lived in the West Indies then settled in England at Hylands, their home from 1797 to 1814. Soon after moving in, the Kortrights engaged the landscape architect Humphry Repton to advise improvements to the Hylands estate, including landscaping the park and facing the house with white stucco. Jens Juel was Professor, later Director, of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. He was one of the first painters of the Danish 'Golden Age', influenced by the naturalism and informality of French and English art. Both the Waltersdorff and Kortright families commissioned portraits, as did Danish royalty.
