Title Bronze statue of Louis Pasteur, Europe, 1870-1890

The bronze statue shows the French chemist and microbiologist Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) in a famous pose examining the contents of a flask. Pasteur had a number of research interests including fermentation, spontaneous generation, diseases of animals such as silkworms, and human diseases such as rabies, which made him world famous. Notice how he is dressed; not in the white lab coat of a modern scientist but dressed in a frock-coat and suit. The base of the statue is signed “Galli” and may refer to Riccardo Galli, Italian artist, active c. 1877-1890, or Pietro Galli, Italian sculptor (1804-1877).

sculptor: Galli, Pietro

Place made: Europe
