The name of this sitter is unknown, though her noble bearing and restrained but elegant clothing have, despite the informality of the pose, led to various attempts to identify her as possibly a member of the royal family.

The work left Spain in the 1830s, and, as part of the personal collection of King Louis-Philippe, hung in the Louvre. It was then purchased by Sir William Stirling Maxwell at the sale in London of Louis-Philippe's 'Spanish Gallery' in 1853. The painting was given to the City of Glasgow, together with Pollok House and Estate, by Mrs Anne Maxwell Macdonald and family in 1966.
