Anker Smith, circa 1790 Mr. John Bowyer wearing scarlet coat with pale green facings edged with silver and silver epaulettes, black tricorn hat over powdered hair worn en queue The miniature was formerly backed with artist signature and sitter’s details. Gilt metal frame with velvet reverse.

Smith was noted as an engraver and he did execute some miniatures although these are rare. He married Charlotte Susannah Snape, in 1790, who was the niece of Faunteroy Bowyer. It is possible that the sitter in this portrait is related to Faunteroy Bowyer. Smith's sister was Mrs. Maria Ross, who was the wife of William Ross the miniaturist.
