Galileo Galilei (1564-1642)

A half-length portrait dressed in black, probably painted when Galileo was about 42 years old. He wears his hair closely cropped and has a beard. The sitter is slightly to left and looks directly at the viewer. The portrait is significant since it is thought to be the earliest original one of Galileo, the Italian astronomer and experimental philosopher who invented the refracting telescope. This made it possible for him to see that the Moon had mountains and Jupiter had satellites, although his astronomical theories brought him into famous controversy with the Catholic church.
