Gallaway was a Scottish artist about whom little is known. He exhibited at the Society of Artists, Edinburgh, 1808, where he is known to have been working up until 1812. His miniatures are well painted and his work is scarce.
Richard was the son of John Webb Esq. of Powerlands. A Lieutenant in the 9th Regiment of Foot, Richard was fatally wounded in a skirmish between British and French forces in 1779, resulting in his premature death aged just twenty-four years old. This portrait was painted posthumously after a small oil portrait taken in 1770
