The design of this somewhat stiffly painted portrait corresponds with the engraving by George Vertue published without date or source but entered under the year 1721 in his manuscript list of engravings. 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).
