Crofts is shown standing amongst trees, wearing a red coat and breeches and a pale brown, striped waistcoat. He and his wife must have sat for Reynolds in 1775, as payments were made in November of that year and April of 1776.1 The companion portrait of Harriet Darrell Crofts is in the collection of the Dixon Gallery and Gardens, Memphis, Tennessee.
1. Reynold’s Pocket Books, which list sitters and their appointments, are missing for 1774 and 1775 (see Mannings, under Literature).
