Image of romantic portrait sketch

Pencil Sketch

This delightfully romantic pencil drawing, initialled and dated "MW Sept 1836", would originally have been a page bound in an album or scrapbook. A well thought out and skillfully executed as this drawing is it's likely that it was based on a contemporary engraving.

Q Can anyone confirm this and identify the source, engraver or artist?
