Sir Thomas Lawrence was a great friend of both Kemble and his sister Sarah Siddons, and he depicted members of the family on numerous occasions throughout his career, including a full-length portrait of Kemble as Hamlet in 1801, which today is in the Tate's collection (no.N00142). It was unusual for Lawrence to work in pure watercolour, and as such these works very rarely appear on the market.
