Charles Darwin, 1859

from Cambridge 800: An Informal Panorama

As part of the celebrations to commemorate the 800th anniversary of Cambridge University in 2009, Quentin was asked to produce a frieze depicting famous alumni. This one features Charles Darwin, who also appeared - galloping on a giant beetle - in a light show projected onto the Senate House in Cambridge as part of the festivities.

The complete frieze is now on permanent display in Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge.
