Caption: Michael Faraday (1791-1867), British chemist and physicist. Faraday worked at the Royal Institution, London, rising from laboratory assistant to Humphrey Davy (1813), to Professor of Chemistry (1833). Faraday made several discoveries in chemistry in the 1820s, but his major works were in the areas of magnetism and electricity. His lectures at the Royal Institution popularized science amongst the public. This statue is a marble original, erected in 1876 at the Royal Institution, carved by the sculptors John Henry Foley and Thomas Brock. Faraday is depicted in academic robes holding his induction ring.
