The discovery of the Leyden Jar, 1745 (1894). An experiment conducted by Dutch scientist Pieter van Musschenbroek. Musschenbroeck (1692-1761) and his student, Andrea Cunaeus, invented a cheap and convenient device for storing an electric charge. The Leyden jar, named after the Dutch town where it was devised, was the first device that could store large amounts of charge and consisted of a glass phial which was partially filled with water and contained a thick conducting wire. The jar was charged by bringing an exposed end of this conducting wire into contact with a friction device that generated static electricity.

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.
