Strang's drawing was made as Dilke's Grillion's Club portrait, fulfilling a tradition of the club that each member should have their likeness made. Strang wrote to Dilke in July 1907 saying that 'there is no one I am more anxious to do successfully than yourself' but the sitting for this drawing had to wait until March 1908.
