James Nasmyth, Copernicus, mid-19th century
A chalk illustration of the moon crater 'Copernicus' by Scottish engineer James Nasmyth (1808 - 1890), this rather beautiful image exists at the intersection of science and art. Nasmuth was a keen astronomer and beginning in 1842, embarked on a project to create a minutely observed study of the moon using a 20-inch reflecting telescope set up in his garden. Over the course of 30 years he made countless drawings of the moon's craters and landscapes. From the collection of The Fitzwilliam Museum.
