Black and White# 14 Newton after Blake by Eduardo Paolozzi

Susan Nolen's Black and White photo of Newton After BlakeThis week’s black and white photograph is one that I took in the courtyard of the British Library. This is an amazing sculpture by the artist Eduardo Paolozzi, of Sir Isaac Newton. The original art was in a print dated 1795, by the poet and artist, William Blake.   When you stand underneath it, it feels as if the weight of the world is about to come crashing down! I love the idea of a two-dimensional Newton recreated in another century in almost Frankenstein form of solid bronze bolted together.  Black and White #14 Newton

 

About susan sheldon nolen

It’s rare to catch me without coffee, a form of camera, or my beloved wire fox terriers. I love the history, the art, and it’s a massive part of my life, as I either paint, write, or get interrupted by my dogs, reminding me of the real world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.
