Caption: Louis Pasteur (1822-1895), French microbiologist and chemist. Pasteur found that fermentation is caused by micro-organisms, and also proposed the germ theory of disease. He developed a vaccine against rabies, which led to the founding of the Pasteur Institute in 1888. He discovered the anthrax bacterium and developed a vaccine against it. He also discovered that gentle heating of wine and beer preserves them from souring: this is the process of pasteurisation which is now widely used in the food industry. This etching on wove paper was made by French artist Fernand Desmoulin (1853-1914).
