Albert Einstein (1879-1955), German-Swiss-US physicist, anthropological model. Einstein is famous for his theories of relativity (including General Relativity, 1915) that rewrote our concepts of gravity, space and time. His mass-energy equation (E=mc2) was derived from his 1905 paper on Special Relativity. This principle of mass-energy equivalence led to nuclear fission and the atomic bomb. Einstein also contributed to theories of quantum physics. He was awarded the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on the photoelectric effect. Reconstruction by Elisabeth Daynes of the Daynes Studio, Paris, France.
