Naftel, a Guernsey-born artist, had his studio in St Peter Port, where Victoria and Albert disembarked on their first visit to the island in August 1846. His depictions of their arrival published in the Illustrated London News were probably seen by Victoria and Albert, who then commissioned Naftel to paint this watercolour for their album.
