This is a portrait of John Charles Montague, who upon his retirement in 1847 was appointed a Yeoman of the Guard (more commonly known as "Beefeaters"). The picture was painted in 1876 and shown at the 1877 Royal Academy exhibition, where it was quite popular. It was sent to the Paris Exhibition of 1878 ( along with "Chill October" and three other paintings), and was met very warmly there as well.
