The sitter was the son of Henry Howard, 4th Earl of Carlisle, and his second wife Isabella Byron, the great-aunt of Lord Byron, the poet. He entered the House of the Lords in 1770 and in the same year married Margaret Caroline (d. 1824), daughter of Granville Leveson-Gower, 1st Marquess of Stafford. In 1780 he was appointed viceroy of Ireland.

A great patron of the arts, he was part of the consortium who – after the French revolution – acquired the Orleans Collection of paintings, which was later housed at his family's seat, Castle Howard.
