Scottish portraitist Sir Henry Raeburn (1756 – 1823) is remembered for his paintings of Edinburgh's elites and for helping found the Royal Scottish Academy, which officially established after his death in 1826. In 1822, one year before Raeburn's death, he was knighted and appointed to serve as King George IV's Limner and Painter.

In addition to this portrait's subject, Mrs. John Campbell Sr. of Possil, Raeburn painted other members of the Campbell family, including her husband, her son, Alexander Campbell, and his wife, Harriett Campbell.
