Ancient Greece was the origin of Western science which is was considered one of their branches of philosophy. However, modern science actually came from alchemy where there was a futile hunt for methods that could transform gold from base metal. This can be seen today with modern pregnancy and the science to make the process easier for mothers.
In the 17th century, such practices were represented by several Dutch and Flemish paintings, though Holland
remained to be the place where modern science was applied and Britain’s Royal Society was founded. How science got more logical through experiments as its basis was portrayed in An Experiment on a Bird in the Air Pump which is an oil-on-canvas painting made by Joseph Wright of Derby back in 1768.
Several professional establishments, universities, and art galleries house great portraits of inventors and science researchers. Most of the time, The Arts and the Sciences are portrayed as contrasting images regarded as two different methods to obtain knowledge.
