Art on Sunday | art and science

Art is more important than science. You can see it very well in Medal of Honor for Arts and Sciences from the House of Orange.† Last Monday, Dr. / Astronaut Andre Kuipers was allowed to do so Receive the gem† OK, a gem, it’s still quite large, as can be seen in the photo where Kuipers are shown passes through the tape

This makes him one of seven scholars to be awarded the Medal of Honor. In the past, a single wheel maker (Dafjee) was also honored. But the vast majority of medals went to artists. Thirty-two to be exact.

If the king and his predecessors valued art more than science, is it any wonder that his subjects turned to science?

What is noteworthy in the list of winners: not a single artist is a scientist either. “Medal of Honor for Arts or Science” would be a better title.

Scientists and artists in all respects are rare(Art on Sunday, September 8, 2013). Certainly of the kind of Leonardo da Vinci (including engineer, physicist, anatomist, sculptor, and painter) and Galileo Galilei (physicist, astronomer, mathematician, philosopher, and painter).

Life in the fourteenth, sixteenth and seventeenth centuries may have been less active than it is today, but it is highly unlikely that the masters would have completed a successful study in all those fields. Not to mention building a scientific career with it. But the romantic image of “Uomo universale” appeals to the imagination.

Scientists in those years had to be good at fiction, just because of the lack of photo and film resources. If one wants to make something visually clear, it must be drawn, drawn, and painted. This resulted, for example, with much better usage instructions than we sometimes find today.
