Williams is one of the few British painters by whom Thorvaldsen acquired any works. He was born in Wales and trained in the Royal Academy in London. He lived in Rome from 1827. Thorvaldsen lived permanently in Rome until 1838, when he returned to Denmark. But in 1841/42 he made a brief return to Rome, on which occasion he commissioned this painting of the two shepherd children.
