Aristarchus of Samos

24" x 36"

Acrylic, India Ink and Conte on Canvas


Aristarchus of Samos was the first person to go on record stating that the earth orbited the sun, and calculated very accurately, the size of the Earth in the 3rd century BC - that's pretty bad-ass. Very little else is know about him. (On a side note, this is painted on the canvas I made for the Opus canvas stretching video - find the link in the "Video" section of my page)
