Savage

Savage

[sav-ij]
Savage, Edward, 1761-1817, American portrait painter and engraver. He was probably self-taught, although he may have studied with Benjamin West during a brief visit to London. He at one time operated art galleries in Boston, Philadelphia, and New York City. His most famous painting is The Washington Family (National Gall. of Art, Washington, D.C.), which exhibits facility in the spatial organization of stiffly executed figures. The portrait of Abraham Whipple (U.S. Naval Academy) is another of his works often reproduced.
Savage, Minot Judson, 1841-1918, American Unitarian clergyman and writer, b. Norridgewock, Maine. After serving for nine years in the ministry of the Congregational Church, he became a Unitarian. He was pastor of the Third Unitarian Church, Chicago (1873-74); of the Church of the Unity, Boston (1874-96); and of the Church of the Messiah, New York City (1896-1906). An active advocate of Darwinian evolutionistic optimism and social reform, he also preached a spiritualistic faith in personal survival after death (see Life Beyond Death, 1899). Other writings include Christianity, the Science of Mankind (1873), The Morals of Evolution (1880), and Immortality (1906).
Savage, Richard, 1697?-1743, English poet. The now discredited story of his illegitimate descent from a noble line and of his persecutions, which are set forth in a biography by Samuel Johnson, won him a reputation that his works scarcely merited. His output includes two poems, The Bastard (1728) and The Wanderer (1729), and two comedies. In 1727 he killed a man in a tavern brawl and was sentenced to death but later was pardoned. He died in poverty.

(born Jan. 30, 1775, Warwick, Warwickshire, Eng.—died Sept. 17, 1864, Florence, Italy) British writer. He was educated at Rugby School and Oxford but left both over disagreements with the authorities. A classicist, he originally wrote many of his works in Latin. Though he wrote lyrics, plays, and heroic poems, he is best remembered for his multivolume Imaginary Conversations, prose dialogues between historical personages (1824–53). He spent much of his life in France and Italy.
