Godfrey Kneller

Half-length portrait of John Somers wearing a shoulder-length brown wig, brown robe and a white shirt and cravat. The right hand is visible, the left hand obscured in the folds of the robe as he stands with left arm crooked. Behind, and to the left as viewed, a bag containing the Great Seal, embroidered with the Royal coat-of-arms, rests on a table covered with a red cloth. The bag for the Great Seal also appears in the Society's portrait of Francis Bacon, Viscount St Albans (1561-1626), denoting his role as Lord Chancellor and Keeper of the Great Seal. John Somers was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1698, he served as its President from 1698 to 1703.
