Fine Art Prints of Distinction

$7.99 

A Museum Quality Print of Thomas Alva Edison Portrait by Abraham Archibald Anderson. The original oil on canvas measures 45 by 55 inches in size and now hangs in the National Portrait Gallery in the Smithsonian Institute, being gifted to this institution in 1942 by Eleanor A. Campbell. The artist painted this portrait of the famous inventor in the year 1889 when Edison visited the Universal Exposition in Paris. The scene depicts the wealthy Edison at the top of his career. Edison was world reknowned for his inventions including the photograph, incandescent lamp, movie camera and many more gadgets which all led to his nickname, The Wizard of Menlo Park. The audiences in Paris were particularly enthralled with Edison's phonograph. He is shown in this portrait with his new and improved model. Even though Edison had patented the phonograph in 1877, he had to labor and work on the invention for 11 years before he got the sound clear enough to make it a commercial success.
