Sir Isaac NEWTON's quote;
"If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants. "
Sir Isaac Newton, an English mathematician and scientist whose major
contribution set the basis of calculus, and expanded the understanding
of color and light (There is a popular story that Isaac Newton was
sitting under an apple tree, an apple fell on his head, and he suddenly
thought of the Universal Law of Gravitation.)
Isaac Newton was educated at Trinity College and became Professor of Mathematics at the university. In 1696 Newton moved to London, where he supervised the Royal Mint and, in 1703, Newton became president of the Royal Society, and was knighted in 1705.
This past weekend my daughter (Aubrey) gave me a bust of Isaac Newton that came from your gallery. An understatement would be to say that I was really blown away by this gift, as Newton has been one of my personal heroes for quite some time. Though Newton lived many years before the advent of Matthew Brady and photography, I do have some sketches and prints from original paintings (of Newton), and the likeness on the bust is a great match. And the quality of the work from your store appears to be very high - almost 2 years ago Aubrey gave me a bust of Einstein (also from your store), and those two figures now have a commanding place on my display shelves.
You, Robert, obviously have an enviable talent - and I have a truly exceptional daughter who cares about me. We both should be very happy men.
