About This Piece
The Art
Illustration showing Thomas Wrights explanation of the Milky Way from his book An Original Theory of the Universe published in London in Wright gave the first correct explanation of the appearance of the Milky Way as being due to our immersion in a layer of stars An observer at A would see few stars when looking towards B or C more when looking towards E F or G and many stars when looking along the plane towards H Wright proposed that the Sun is one of many stars orbiting around a Divine Centre and that the stars are distributed either in thin concentric spherical shells or in annuli like the rings of Saturn

This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.
