Scholars have suggested that the bearded man in this painting might be a self-portrait. Edward Bannister rarely included African American subjects in his paintings, focusing instead on pastoral landscape scenes, which brought him greater success in the art market. (Holland, Edward Mitchell Bannister, 1992)
