Although little is known about the artist Charles Foot Tayler, his portrait miniatures convey accomplished individual likenesses, often slightly more ambitious and less formal than traditional portrait miniatures being produced at this time.

Tayler won the silver Isis medal for an original miniature at the Society of Arts in 1818 and exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1820 until 1853. For a short time in 1820 he lived on the Isle of Wight before relocating to Bath in 1822. He painted a number of individuals involved in theatre and many of his portraits depict his sitters in ornate landscape settings. The Victoria and Albert Museum has an example of his work in their collection.
