The status of this portrait has long been unclear but recent conservation revealed that the face was most likely painted by Gainsborough himself when he was in his mid-forties. The painting was left unfinished when he died and was later completed by his nephew and close collaborator, Gainsborough Dupont. The latter copied the jacket Gainsborough wore in the self portrait presented to the Royal Academy in 1787.
