Description

Remarque proof-etching by L Flameng after an oil painting by John Collier, published by the Fine Art Society in 1885. Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-1895), Profesor of Natural History at the University of London, was best known for his lectures on the subject of natural philosophy at the Royal Institution. Huxley was a supporter of Darwin's evolutionary theory, but whereas Darwin's work was greeted with approbation by many, Huxley's simple style of explanation won greater understanding and acceptance among the general public.
