Mary Livingston, the daughter of Robert Livingston, Jr., the third Lord of Livingston Manor, was married to James Duane on October 21, 1759. This portrait, although reversed, is virtually identical to Earl's painting of Mrs. Alexander Hamilton, now in the Museum of the City of New York. Both portraits were apparently completed while Earl was in debtor's prison in New York.
