The Harvard Law School has another version of this portrait, of nearly the same dimensions (i.e. both nominally 30 x 25 in. canvases), purchased in June 1921. The presumably British artist of both remains unidentified. Neither are the original of Robert White's 1688 engraved portrait, which is in similar pose but claims to be 'ad vivum' and shows Street older.
