  14. Study after Velazquez’s Portrait of Pope Innocent X (1953) by Francis Bacon and Pope Innocent X (1650) by Diego Velazquez

    Francis Bacon often referred to other artists and used photographs as reference material for his paintings. This portrait is a distorted version of the Pope, from a painting by the Spanish artist Diego Velazquez that was painted in 1650. The scream of the Pope may also be referencing the famous painting by Edvard Munch, “The Scream.” Bacon was quoted as saying “We are born with a scream; we come into life with a scream, and maybe love is a mosquito net between the fear of living and the fear of death.

  22. Portrait of Peter Higgs (Father of the God Particle)

    Peter Ware Higgs (born 29 May 1929) is an English theoretical physicist and an emeritus professor at the University of Edinburgh. He is best known for his 1960’s proposal of broken symmetry in electroweak theory, explaining the origin of mass of elementary particles in general and of the W and Z bosons in particular. This so-called Higgs mechanism, which had several inventors besides Higgs at about the same time, predicts the existence of a new particle, the Higgs boson, often described as “the most sought-after particle in modern physics.” Although this particle has not turned up in accelerator experiments so far, the Higgs mechanism is generally accepted as an important ingredient in the Standard Model of particle physics, without which particles would have no mass. Prof. Higgs has been honored with a number of awards in recognition of his work, including the 1997 Dirac Medal and Prize for outstanding contributions to theoretical physics from the Institute of Physics, the 1997 High Energy and Particle Physics Prize by the European Physical Society, the 2004 Wolf Prize in Physics, and the 2010 J. J. Sakurai Prize for Theoretical Particle Physics.
