Caption: Antoine Lavoisier (1743-1794), French chemist. Lavoisier is considered to be the founder of modern chemistry. He was instrumental in the use of accurate measurement in chemistry for the study of chemical composition by elements, oxidation and other combustion reactions. He showed that air was composed of oxygen and nitrogen. His book 'Methods of Chemical Nomenclature' (1787) set the method of naming substances by their composition of elements. Engraving by Francois Seraphin Delpech (1778-1825), after a drawing by Zephirin Belliard (1798-1861) and a painting by Jacques Louis David (1748-1825).
