The Noble Dane: Images of Tycho Brahe
21 January – 26 March 1997
The Museum of the History of Science in Oxford has a fine oil painting in its collections of an imagined scene in the life of the sixteenth-century Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe (1546-1601). It was painted in 1855 by Eduard Ender and shows Tycho demonstrating a celestial globe to the Emperor Rudolph II in Prague.
An exhibition centred on a scene in the life of the Danish astronomer.
