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.
