A closed book entitled Principia (his work on mechanics) lies on the floor to his right. The figure seated to the right is George Frideric Handel () wearing eighteenth-century clothing and holding across his body part of the vocal score of ‘I know that my Redeemer liveth’ from Messiah.

n30 1. Joseph Butler, at this time () rector of Stanhope, County Durham, and Clerk-of-the-Closet to the Queen Consort, presents a copy of the Analogy to Queen Caroline, the wife of King George II and Queen Consort. The Queen is on a throne in the foreground holding a fan in her left hand, with her right hand extended to receive the volume proffered by Butler who is bowing before her. Next to her is the Chamberlain. On the left in the rear are two bishops, probably William Wake who was Archbishop of Canterbury in and Thomas Secker, who was later to become Archbishop of Canterbury.
