Portrait of Humphry Davy (1778-1829)
Davy is portrayed at three quarter length in fashionable Regency dress. He wears a high white stock and white waistcoat with a black jacket and matching overcoat, the latter open to reveal a silk lining. He wears grey trousers with a blue ribbon at the waist and kidskin gloves. The left arm is crooked to the waist, the right rests on a red cloth-lined table, upon which rests a miner's safety lamp to Davy's design. A deep turquoise-blue sky is balanced by a rich red cloth to Davy's left side; the two colours separated by an architectural pillar. Humphry Davy was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1803, he served as its President from 1820 to 1827.
