Francis Bacon (Portrait by Paul van Somer I, 1617)


British philosopher, statesman, author, lawyer and jurist whose essays rank among the greatest ever written. He became a lawyer in 1583 and held office under Queen Elizabeth I; Bacon later became a Member of Parliament. In 1621, he was accused of taking bribes and fined 40,000 pounds.
