This portrait was made the year Conrad completed the novel Nostromo, a story of corruption in the fictitious South American republic of Costaguana. Exhausted by this 'intense creative effort', Conrad wrote that he had neglected the 'common joys of life' for twenty months. Beresford took many portraits of writers and artists, which appeared in the leading illustrated periodicals of the day.
