The original version of the portrait was painted in Paris where Cobden was engaged in successfully negotiating a commercial treaty with France. The treaty was signed by Barouche and Rouher for the French and by {Lord Cowley|mp13290} and Cobden for the English; the signatures of the last three can be seen in the portrait.
