33: Science Imitates Art

BHI Center for Curation Science Discovers Coincidence

The BHI Curation Science Center Director, S. MacDougall, made an astonishing discovery while tending to a routine cleaning of a prized but obscure Picasso drawing that was part of a series of sketches produced just prior to the famous 1937 'Guernica' painting.  The image on the left is a detail from the line drawing and the image to the right is an actual 1974 particle trajectory diagram that would later confirm the Baryon particle at the Brookhaven National Laboratory.  This is truly a case of Science imitating Art.  Could it be that Picasso possessed a Cosmic premonition of this proton bombardment pattern?  The Center is now re-examining other drawing samples to determine if there are more such striking examples of similitude.

Scientists at the BHI Very Fast Proton Project suggested that there may be a coincidence or the drawings may be frauds.  In either event, the similarities are very compelling.

BHI Curation Gallery is open from 10 AM to 5 PM Monday-Friday.
Admission: $50 per person.
