Newton



This sculpture of Newton at work can be found in the courtyard of the British Library, and is another by Eduardo Palozzi. Although he sounds Italian, he was british (a Scot) which is why we are fortunate enough to have several of his works on display. It is inspired byb William Blake's Newton.

Doesn't look like the Issac Newton we all have seen pictures of. Looks more like a Roman soldier.

Unexpected respresentation. I wonder why he chose to "copy" Blake's painting... and as gail's man puts it, he made it look like he's got armor on. Back to art appreciation class for me! :-)
