This portrait may have been engraved in 1898, at the time of Kitchener's Sudan campaign. However, it does not seem to have been offered for sale until February 1900. Thirty or more impressions were taken from the block on which the portrait was engraved, and these were mounted on card and signed and dated 'William Nicholson 1900'. Advertisements for these hand-coloured woodcuts have not yet been traced, but the cuts were probably offered to members of the public at the same time as the lithographic reproductions (i.e., in February 1900).
The Lord Kitchener was reissued in Twelve Portraits (second series) in 1902.
An impression was shown at the Company of the Butterfly exhibition in November 1900 (no. 94).
