The background used here was one Metford used on several occasions (cf. Mckechnie, 1978, British Silhouette Artists and their Works, p. 332, figs 534 and 536).

Metford, born in Somerset of Quaker stock 1810, went to USA circa 1834. He seemed to have centred his activities on Connecticut, but as this silhouette proves, he visited neighbouring states. He returned to England in the early 1840s, and lived there for the rest of his life, although he revisited America in 1869 and 1867. He died at Weston-Super-Mare.
