Henry Brintnell Bounetheau copied a miniature painted by Andrew Robinson, now in the Gibbes Art Gallery in Charleston, South Carolina, when he made this likeness of Mrs. Arthur Middleton (1789-1840). It is possible he was hired to make commemorative miniatures following her death, so that other family members could have her picture in a locket.
