1689 Sir Isaac Newton portrait young Featured Godfrey Kneller Print

1689 Sir Isaac Newton portrait young

Sir Isaac Newton ( 4 January 1643 -31 March 1727). English physicist and mathematician. 18th Century Mezzotint portrait after the painting by Sir Godfrey Kneller 1689, with later colouring. It shows Newton in his prime and is the earliest of the portraits. Newton is famous for his laws of motion and gravitation and remains one of the greatest scientists of all time. His opus magnus was his "Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica". Other pursuits included optical physics, alchemy, religious and occult investigation, and preventing forgery while superintendant of the Royal Mint. He was widely viewed as an eccentric genius, but his human remains indicated mercury poisoning from his alchemy may have contributed to his instability. This version retains yellow age toning of original and is in the possession of the photographer

Anthony Payne 'The Cornish Giant', Sir Godfrey Kneller, Baronet (1646-1723)

Oil on canvas, English School, 1680. Anthony Payne (circa 1612-1691), 'The Cornish Giant', was 7 foot, 4 inches tall. He was a yeoman of Stratton and was the personal retainer to Sir Bevill Grenville, a leading Royalist. He was present at the Battle of Lansdown (1643) when Sir Bevill was killed. This painting was commissioned by Charles II, probably as a gift to Sir Bevill's son, John of Stowe in Kilkhampton parish. Anthony Payne is shown wearing the uniform of a Halberdier of the Guns of Plymouth Citadel. He died at Stratton, near Bude, in the same house he was born in. Born in Germany, Kneller became the leading portraitist in England during the late 17th and early 18th centuries
