While they weren't painted as a pair, the two portraits by William Hoare use the same medium, have uniform sizes and frames, and treat their subjects similarly. The male portrait is of William Ffolkes, while the female sitter in the second portrait is unidentified. Hoare developed his style during nine years in Rome during which he met celebrated portrait painter Pompeo Batoni; on his return to Bath, he established himself as a portraitist who specialised in the use of pastels.
