Benzene Frames

"Archival Digital Pigment Print on Premium Paper
Size: 12" x 16"
Based on my original painting, created with water-soluble wax pastel and acrylic on canvas.
Signed, dated and numbered on back.

Fantastic quality, due to being photographed by the highest resolution digital camera available and the highest quality digital printing available anywhere.

Each print includes a short summary about her accomplishments.

Kathleen Yardley Lonsdale
Chemist 1903-1971

She solved a 64-year contention in chemistry by confirming experimentally the ring structure of benzene, the aromatic compound responsible for scent. She also gave the structure's precise molecular dimensions. In 1945, she was the first woman to be elected to fellowship in the Royal Society, which had excluded women for 285 years.
