"The Dance" after H. Matisse by Irina Chuckowree


Available to buy on…

A molecular representation of the Matisse painting showing dancing NanoPutians that were first synthesised by James Tour (yes, some chemists have nothing better to do).
I believe this is the first known attempt to express the work of art in chemical structures – a fun exercise in the name of art and science.
