Dr Savage’s Bermuda
Author: Dr. Edward Cecil Harris
National Museum of Bermuda Press, 2015
The forgotten landscape of Bermuda in the 1830s is recovered in this remarkable collection of paintings by the prolific and talented Royal Artillery surgeon Dr. Johnson Savage. The paintings were the start of an extraordinary relationship between Bermuda and several generations of the Savage family. Included are exquisite images from Savage’s later posting in Corfu; his work as a medical illustrator; paintings by his Royal Navy Midshipman son Arthur; and an account of the doctor’s grandson, Arthur Johnson Savage, RE, who completed the great Ordnance Survey of Bermuda in 1900.
