Heroes of the Microscope

Spanish publishing house Next Door commission Iratxe López de Munáin for portraits of historical heroes.

The theme of the publication is Heroes of the Microscope, with Iratxe's art illustrating the profiles of Rita Levi, Leuwenhoek, Pasteur and Ramon y Cajal. Each of these figures, prominent in their own medical professions made notable findings: Rita Levi was an Italian Nobel laureate, honoured for her work in neurobiology, Leuwenhoek was a Dutch businessman and scientist known as 'the Father of Microbiology' and one of the first microscopists and microbiologists, Pasteur; a French biologist, microbiologist and chemist was renowned for his discoveries of the principles of vaccination, microbial fermentation and pasteurization and finally Ramón y Cajal, a Spanish neuroscientist and pathologist, specializing in neuroanatomy, particularly the histology of the central nervous system.  The portraits are painted with a charm and respect using gouache and coloured pencils, giving a warm tactile feel.
