He exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy from 1842 and he was noted for his portrayal of uplifting themes and brilliant colors reminiscent of the work of Sir Charles Eastlake. Dobson was elected ARA in 1860 and RA in 1872.

The Bible passage referred to in the painting is Job, 42:12-15 when God rewards Job after all his tribulations. "So the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning.."
