Caption: Marie Curie (1867-1934), Polish-French physicist and chemist. Curie was born Marya Sklodowska in Poland, moving to Paris, France, in 1891. She studied at the Sorbonne, marrying Pierre Curie in 1895. Together, they worked on the radioactivity discovered by Becquerel, and with him they shared the 1903 Nobel Prize in Physics. As part of this work, they had discovered two new elements, polonium and radium. This discovery, and later work on the isolation of pure radium, carried out before and after her husband's death in 1906, led to her being awarded the 1911 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Artwork by Elizabeth Korn.
