Taking place at the Royal Society of London on Thursday 21 June 2012, this conference will bring together historians of science and art in order to examine the relationship between science and visual culture in the first hundred years of the Royal Society.
Science produces some of the most intriguing and arresting images in modern culture, from wildlife photographs to scanning electron microscope images. Yet the historical links between scientific research and visual representation are not always apparent.
We hope that this meeting will demonstrate how art, artists, and print-makers enabled creativity and innovation in science, and the extent to which naturalists and natural philosophers, in turn, transformed visual resources and strategies into something of their own.
