Prince Adolphus Frederick, 1st Duke of Cambridge, was President of the German Hospital (1845–1850), and a founding patron, and it is likely that this portrait was purchased by the hospital, c.1851. The subject has sometimes been wrongly identified as Chevalier Bunsen, or as a member of the Schroeder family. The subject was identified in the 1970s by the National Portrait Gallery as Prince George, 2nd Duke of Cambridge (who was President of the German Hospital, 1850–1904).
