The question of likeness with Lely is always a difficult subject as even his contemporaries commented on the fact that many of his sitters looked similar – 'Mr Walker, ye Painter swore Lilly's Pictures, was all Brothers and Sister'. This sitter bears strong affinities to those in other works which have traditionally been called Nell Gwyn, the longtime mistress of Charles II and among Lely's most famous subjects, with whom many portraits by Lely and his studio have been associated, both correctly and incorrectly.
