“Louis Pasteur, Artist”
Joe Gal, PhD
Professor Emeritus, Department of Pathology
University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus
Louis Pasteur is admired around the world as a benefactor of humanity for his discoveries and inventions in microbiology and infectious diseases. Much less well known is that he was a talented artist who as a teenager created first-rate images, mostly portraits of family, friends, and town notables, in pastel, charcoal, pencil, and lithography. He abandoned work as an artist at age 20 but maintained close connections to the world of art and artists for the rest of his life.
