The present painting is based on Reynolds' portrait, probably painted in 1778, today in a private collection.1

Robert Smith, 1st Baron Carrington (1752-1838) was born in Nottingham and was the eldest son of Abel Smith (1717-88). He became a partner in Smith, Payne & Smiths. On the death of his elder brother Abel in 1779 he succeeded him as MP for Nottingham, which he represented in five successive parliaments. Smith succeeded as head of the banking firm after his father's death in 1788. As an MP he was a follower and close friend of William Pitt the Younger, supporting him through his pocket boroughs of Midhurst and Wendover. In reward, in 1796 he was created Baron Carrington of Bulcot Lodge and in 1797 of Upton.
