Marble Portrait Bust of George Boole, F.R.S. by Thomas Earle

About

Thomas Earle (1810-1876) was a distinguished 19th century English sculptor who regularly exhibited at the Royal Academy and was honoured by that institution with a gold medal for his work. This magnificent portrait bust in the Roman style is believed to be of George Boole, F.R.S. (1815-1864), the brilliant English mathematician (the adjective "Boolean" precedes a long list of mathematical and logical terms) and philosopher whose contributions to the study of logic were fundamental a century later to the development of digital electronics, and have earned him the title of "Father of the Information Age". This piece has a very striking presence. It is signed "T. Earle - London" and is in good condition, with restoration to the neck and one shoulder, and a few tiny and unobjectionable chips. It can be displayed either indoors or outdoors, mounted on its original marble socle, or without it (most of the photographs here show it without the plinth).
