George Savile was a statesman and writer, who sat in the English House of Commons in 1660 and was elevated to the House of Lords in 1668. Savile became a favorite of king Charles for his witty banter and viciously anti-French attitudes. In this portrait my Mary Beale he sits demurely, right hand in his jacket — a pose made forever famous by Napoleon in his 1812 portrait by Jacques-Louis David.

Joke’s on you, George Savile.
