This painting has traditionally been attributed to David des Granges, who is otherwise known as a painter of portrait miniatures, although a handful of half-length paintings by him have also been noted. Des Granges was of an immigrant family from Guernsey and was baptised in 1611 at the French Church in London; as an adult he lived and worked in the Covent Garden area. He was employed as a miniaturist by Charles I (reigned 1625–1649). During the English Civil War and subsequent Commonwealth period (1642–1660) he took the royalist side and produced many miniatures of the future Charles II (reigned 1660–1685).
