Note: British painter William Jones depicted this subject in several similar works. The subject is said to have been a doorman at the Pump Room in Bath. Being the United Kingdom at the time, the servant would not have been enslaved but was painted nonetheless in an ‘exotica’ style consistent with decorative painting of the period.
