Earlier in the month this portrait was painted, Walker commanded the Turkish squadron at the bombardment of Acre, for which he became a Knight Commander of the Bath in 1841. After his return to England he became Surveyor of the Navy; under his auspices Britain built its first iron-hulled warship, HMS Warrior, although Walker believed iron ships would never replace wooden ones. David Wilkie (1785-1841) set out for the East in 1840 to gather material for a series of biblical illustrations, visiting Constantinople, Beirut, Jerusalem, Cairo, and Alexandria. He died at sea on his return journey, before he could turn his sketches into the intended oils: This plate appeared in his 'Sketches in Turkey, Syria and Egypt' published in 1843.
