This painting was bequeathed to the museum as a Portrait of Lewis Bagot. However, the identity of the sitter has been doubted. The portrait has now been dated to the 1780s and it has been suggested that the sitter may be another member of the Bagot family, perhaps the First Baron.

Bequeathed by Mrs Mabel Arden Haworth Booth, 1965.
