In this double portrait a grieving mother is consoled by her young son. Presumably she grieves for the loss of her husband, George Keppel, Third Earl of Albemarle (1724–1772), who had died some years earlier. This work is a copy, made in 1888 by Constance Pitcairn, of a painting by George Romney, painted in c.1777–79. The original work is in the collection at Kenwood House.
