Rosalind Frances Stanley met her husband, the 9th Earl of Carlisle, on a visit to Oxford. The couple shared an interest in art and architecture, knew most of the leading artists of the time, and had a home built for them in Kensington by the architect Philip Webb. This portrait of Rosalind by her husband dates from four years after their marriage in 1864. She became increasingly frustrated with her husband's wish to practise as an artist and their marriage broke down in the 1880s.
