This is thought to be a copy in oils by the artist herself of her original pastel portrait. A sticker on the back of the painting states ‘This Portrait of Samuel Taylor Coleridge was painted from the Life at the house of James Gillman in [3] The Grove, Highgate and was presented to me, his partner. Robert G. Moger FRCS'. Coleridge spent much of his time living with Dr Gillman and his family in Highgate from 1816 until his death, attempting to keep his addiction to opium under control.
