William Harvey (1578-1657) by an unknown artist at the National Portrait Gallery. Harvey was an English physician who was the first to describe accurately how blood was pumped around the body by the heart. In 1607, he became a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and, in 1609, was appointed physician to St Bartholomew's Hospital. In 1618, he became physician to James I and then Charles I. Both James and Charles took a close interest in and encouraged Harvey's research.Taken from a series of cigarette cards entitled 'Celebrities of British History' produced by Carreas Ltd, 1935.
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.
