Caption: Andre-Marie Ampere (1775-1836), French physicist and pioneer of electrodynamics. Ampere also worked as a mathematician and chemist. He was elected to the French Academy of Sciences in 1814. His most famous work came when he began to study the new field of electromagnetism in 1820. His work in this area led to the International System (SI) unit of electric current being named after him. This statue, by the French sculptor Charles Textor (1835-1905), was inaugurated in Ampere's birthplace of Lyon, France, in 1888. Artwork from the second volume (second period of 1888) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
