Portrait of George Peacock (1791-1858)
Half-length portrait of George Peacock seated in an armchair upholstered in red with a carved wooden back and scrolled armrests. Peacock is half-turned to the viewer's left and holds open a paper-bound book in which is a plan and elevation of Ely Cathedral, where Peacock serves as Dean. Two volumes rest on a table at Peacock's right hand, the table covered by a blue cloth with a patterned edge. Additional leather-bound books can be seen in a wooden bookcase behind the sitter. Peacock is dressed soberly, in clerical style: a black suit with a white shirt and neck-cloth. George Peacock was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1818.
