Holland was a townscape and theatrical scene painter who worked in Philadelphia from 1796 to 1807 after coming to America from his native England. In 1807 he established himself in New York as a painter of scenery for the New Theatre, and very late in his life did some work for the Park Theatre. Evers painted this miniature in New York while he was a student of Holland, learing to paint theatrical scenery.
