Portrait of James Jurin (1679-1750)
Three-quarter length portrait of James Jurin, seated on a red chair with ornate gilded surround. Jurin rests his right arm on a table covered with a green cloth upon which is a pile of three books, the central volume inscribed "J.Jurin M.D." Jurin holds an open edition of Sir Isaac Newton's Principia Mathematica in his left hand. He is dressed in a grey shoulder-length wig, brown waistcoat and white neck-cloth over which is a green robe with red at the collars and cuffs. Behind the sitter are screens decorated in green and gold with sunlight slanting into the painting. Jurin was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1717.
