The artist was a painter of genre subjects and landscapes who exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1826–1846. His domestic interiors are characterised by a meticulous technique inspired by Dutch genre painting. This painting is particularly interesting in that it accurately depicts the drawing room of the house shortly after it was completed in 1836. More importantly, in relation to the collections of Lancashire County Museum Service, it is a unique record of a room splendidly furnished by the well-known cabinet-making firm Gillows of Lancaster, in which individual pieces can be identified in the surviving Gillows' Estimate Sketch Books as having been made for Thomas Greene of Whittington Hall.
