'Robert Hooke, Engineer'
By Rita Greer
A memorial portrait presented to the Department of Engineering Science at Oxford University in 2009. It shows Hooke in Oxford with important work – a wheel barometer, his microscope and copy of ‘Micrographia’, a pocket watch, optic, spring and universal joint. He is holding a chain to make a catenary arch and on the wall behind him is a map of the City of London which he helped to survey and rebuild after the Great Fire of 1666.
