About Dorothy Savile, Countess of Burlington and Countess of Cork

"Lady Dorothy Savile, also known as Lady Dorothy Boyle, was the Countess of Burlington and Countess of Cork (13 September 1699 – 21 September 1758) was an 18th-century aristocrat and caricature and portrait painter. She was the wife of Richard Boyle, 3rd Earl of Burlington. Several of her studies and paintings were made of her daughters. Chatsworth House, which descended through her daughter Charlotte, holds a collection of 24 of her works of art.

Like her husband, Savile had a great interest in the arts and she was a patron of David Garrick and George Frideric Handel. Savile was also one of Queen Caroline's Ladies of the Bedchamber. Savile Row, developed at the edge of the Boyle's Burlington House estate, was named for Lady Savile."
