He was elected to the Royal Institute of Painters in 1906 and served as its President from 1936-1963.. Very Good. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.

      U.S. 1924 - The First Edition Online Bookstore has a large collection of original Willy Pogany artwork for sale. This collection of artwork includes original Willy Pogany portrait drawings and original Willy Pogany erotic etchings. The First Edition Online Bookstore has included in this stunning Willy Pogany artwork collection an original Willy Pogany illustration of American fencing champion Adeline Josephine Gehrig. The Willy Pogany original drawing is on paper measuring 5.50 x 8.50 inches (approx) and is in Near Fine condition with only very slight discolouration. The Willy Pogany portrait of Adeline Josephine Gehrig was undertaken on the S.S. America either to or from the 1924 Olympic Games in Paris since it is dated 1924 with Willy Pogany adding the words S.S. America next to his signature. The reverse bears the previous owner's address label. Adeline Josephine Gehrig was born on June 11, 1887 in Newark, New Jersey in the United States of America. Adeline Josephine Gehrig is the cousin of baseball player Lou Gehrig and at the age of 36 was one of two women representing the USA in the Women's Foil Individual at the 1924 Paris Olympic Games, the other being Irma Hopper. The First Edition Online Bookstore has this rare and collectable Willy Pogany original illustration of Leon M. Schoonmaker looking very distinguished in a bow tie. This Willy Pogany original drawing was carried out at the same time as the drawing of Adeline Josephine Gehrig and so is believed to have been carried out either to or from the 1924 Paris Olympic Games. Under his clear and large pencil signature Willy Pogany has added the words S.S. America 1924. The subject's name is written underneath the image. The Willy Pogany original illustration is on paper that measures 5.50 x 8.50 inches (approx) and is in Near Fine condition. Leon M. Schoonmaker from Princeton University was the U.S. men's fencing champion at the 1920 Antwerp Summer Olympic Games and President and Secretary of the Amateur Fencers League of America (AFLA). The First Edition Online Bookstore has this original Willy Pogany original illustration of a man named Donald B. Shedhams. The Willy Pogany original illustration of Donald B. Shedhams is on paper that measures 6.00 x 9.75 inches (approx). Condition is Very Good with light creasing and age toning to the edges; and the previous owner's address label to the reverse. Willy Pogany carried out this portrait illustration at the same time that he drew Adeline Josephine Gehrig and Leon M. Schoonmaker since the under his clear and large pencil signature Willy Pogany has added the words S.S. America 1924. As with the other two Willy Pogany portrait illustrations, it is believed that this portrait was undertaken either to or from the Summer Olympic Games in Paris of 1924. The subject's name is written underneath the image. The First Edition Online Bookstore has the very rare and collectable Willy Pogany etching Captive Spirit for sale. The Willy Pogany Captive Spirit etching was possibly produced for a book and is of a nude blonde woman tied up and in the hands of a man whose own hands are tied together. The image measures 9.00 x 12.00 inches (approx) and bears the Willy Pogany's signature to the bottom right corner in pencil and the title in Willy Pogany's hand to the bottom left corner. The Willy Pogany Captive Spirit etching has the number 50 to the bottom centre. The etching has a couple of folds that are unlikely to be too noticeable when framed; there is gum residue to the top left corner where there was once a label; some light dust soiling; and the previous owner's label to the reverse. Overall, this is a very attractive and rare Willy Pogany etching and would make a wonderful addition to any Willy Pogany collection or any collection of original artwork. The First Edition Online Bookstore has this very rare and collectable Willy Pogany large erotic etching for sale. This Willy Pogany original erotic etching features a pair of lovers with nude man kneel [Attributes: First Edition]

Marie Sklodowska Curie (1867-1934) war eine Physikerin polnischer Herkunft, die in Frankreich wirkte. Sie untersuchte die 1896 von Henri Becquerel beobachtete Strahlung von Uranverbindungen und prägte für diese das Wort "radioaktiv". Im Rahmen ihrer Forschungen, für die ihr 1903 ein anteiliger Nobelpreis für Physik und 1911 der Nobelpreis für Chemie zugesprochen wurde, entdeckte sie gemeinsam mit ihrem Ehemann Pierre Curie die chemischen Elemente Polonium und Radium. Marie Curie ist bisher die einzige Frau unter den vier Mehrfach-Nobelpreisträgern und neben Linus Pauling die einzige Person, die Nobelpreise auf zwei unterschiedlichen Gebieten erhalten hat (aus: Wikipedia). --- Un ouvrage en première parution, reliure pleine toile avec titre, un exlibris à l`interieur, trois noms de propriétaires sur la page de titre, quelques annotations sur le cadre de la planche page 16, 210 pages avec diverses figures et diagrammes, bon état général. --- A rare and first edition of this essential work by Marie Curie, cloth bound, black lettering on spine, exlibris inside,3 former owners'names on fly-leaf,on page 16 some handwritten calculations on plate-frame, 210 pages, altogether good condition. 16 x 24,5 Cm. 0,52 Kg.
