With a date of 1786 this work was painted by Lawrence at the age of seventeen. The Lawrences lived in Bath from 1780-89 and Kenneth Garlick speculates that the pastel work that the artist produced at this time may have been learnt from William Hoare of Bath.
Robert Morris was born in 1761 and served with the 2nd Nottinghamshire Regiment from 1783 until 1792.
Dr. Kenneth Garlick confirmed the attribution and date of this work in December 1990.
