Thomas Pellett (c.1671-1744), physician. A resident of Covent Garden (he was buried in the churchyard of St Paul's, Covent Garden), Pellett was a fellow of the Royal Society and Royal College of Physicians. This engraving is done from a 1737 portrait by Swedish painter Michael Dahl in the Royal College of Physicians. The engraving shows various changes from the oil painting, most notably on the right where a classical bust has been inserted. Pellett was also painted by Hogarth.
