Von der Forschung gezeichnet

Instrumente und Apparaturen in Heidelberger Laboratorien, skizziert von Friedrich Veith (1817–1907)

In the heyday of the University of Heidelberg in the 19th century luminaries such as the chemist Robert Bunsen, the physicist Gustav Kirchhoff and the physiologist Hermann Helmholtz coined the University’s fame. They had their scientific instruments and experimental setups depicted by the University’s drawing teacher Friedrich Veith (1817–1907). A portfolio of some 50 of his drawings from 1856 to 1891forms a unique source for the experimental culture of that period. It also testifies to the importance of visual communication in science and to the role of the many ‘invisible hands’ on which research depends.

Christine Nawa is a historian of the physical sciences. From 2005 to 2008 she received a research fellowship from the Stadt Heidelberg Stiftung.
