Oil Painting on Canvas: "Meeting of the Scientists"

$5,500.00
A historical treasure, this unique oil painting entitled "Meeting of the Scientists" offers the viewer a remarkable glimpse into the world of 18th century academia. Reminiscent of French Enlightenment standards, it depicts the clashing of two worlds: on the one hand, devotees of mysticism and divine inspiration, and on the other hand, new world disciples of scientific progress and the school of empiricism. At center, a wizened astrologer attempts to read the palm of his youthful cohort. Elsewhere allegorical figures denoting the arts, architecture, astrology, cartography, and science populate the scene. In exceptional condition, this is a rare piece of artwork sure to spark conversation on the part of art enthusiasts and amateurs alike.
