John Bacon the Elder was a sculptor, responsible for some important monuments, and a variety of statues in London and elsewhere. He later also worked for Wedgwood. He was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy in 1770, and full Academician in 1777, and it was from around this time that he began to win major commissions for sculptural works, including in 1779 the monument to Chatham in Westminster Abbey.
This appears to be a miniature by Bate, probably executed prior to his enamel of the same sitter, which is in the National Portrait Gallery, Number 6289
