Louise Converse (1895-1974) was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Shepherd Converse of Westwood, Massachusetts. Her father, Frederick Converse, was a noted romantic composer whose opera, The Pipe of Desire (1906), became the first by an American composer to be staged at the Metropolitan Opera when it was performed in 1911. He studied music under John Knowles Paine at Harvard College and later joined the faculty as an assistant professor of music. On June 15, 1915, Louise Converse married Junius Spencer Morgan III, the grandson of John Pierpont Morgan, Sr. and the son of John Pierpont Morgan, Jr., at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Boston, Massachusetts. Junius Morgan III served in World War I as a member of the Naval Coast Defense Reserve and again during World War II as a lieutenant commander in the Naval Reserve. He joined the family firm J.P. Morgan & Co. in 1915 and worked as a partner until 1940. Morgan was a leading yachtsman and served as the commodore of the New York Yacht Club where he was active in arranging the America's Cup challenges. He was also the president and a trustee of The Morgan Library, a trustee of the American Museum of Natural History, and a member of the Army Advisory Committee for Greater New York. William McGregor Paxton painted a portrait of the sitter's father in 1899 and a full family portrait in 1903. The present work was completed just prior to the sitter's wedding in 1915.
