Conceivably an early copy of the portrait at Trinity College, Dublin, which was painted in 1742, apparently as a memorial to Boulter's charitable work during the famine of 1740-1. More detailed information on this portrait is available in a National Portrait Gallery collection catalogue, John Kerslake's Early Georgian Portraits (1977, out of print).
