Caption: John Theophilus Desaguliers (1683-1744), French physicist. Desaguliers' Huguenot family fled to England when he was 11. He studied at Christ Church, Oxford, and was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1714. He was experimental assistant to Isaac Newton, and received the Society's Copley Medal three times (1734, 1736 and 1741). His major work was A Course of Experimental Philosophy (1734 and 1744). Desaguliers was also a priest in the Church of England. This artwork was published in 1725.
