    ⚛️☢️ Tras ser descubiertos a finales del siglo XIX, los rayos X fueron empleados con diferentes fines. Entre ellos encontramos los fines médicos. En la Facultad de Medicina de la @universitatvalencia es posible encontrar aparatos de rayos X como los de las imágenes, los cuales datan de principios de siglo XX. En ambas aparatos es posible observar un tubo de vidrio. Para la producción de rayos X, dentro del tubo se aplicaba vacío y se producía la emisión de electrones del cátodo. Al impactar sobre el ánodo, se producía la emisión de energía en forma de rayos X (utilizados para radiografiar) y calor (motivo por el cual el ánodo se encuentra acompañado de un refrigerador).

    This terracotta die comes from the ancient city of Mohenjo-Daro, one of the first urban centres in human history 🎲⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Gaming with dice has been a popular pastime in India for millennia, with this object dating back to 2500–1900 BC. Dicing is also mentioned as an Indian game in Rig and Atharva Vedas (two of the four sacred Vedic scriptures).⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Interestingly, 'games of throwing dice' were also included on the Buddhist games list - a list of games the Gautama Buddha is reputed to have said that he would not play on the grounds that they were 'cause for negligence'. ⁣⠀
⁣⠀
⁣See this object on display in Gallery 12⁣ ⁣⠀

    ⁣British poet, illustrator and painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti was born on this day in 1828 in London. Rossetti was the founder of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, alongside William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais.

Rossetti's romantic medievalism inspired a second generation of Pre-Raphaelite painters, most notably William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones. Alongside his art, he was also known to write sonnets to accompany his pictures, and create art to illustrate the poems and literature that inspired him.

Rossetti's personal life was closely linked to his work, in particular his relationship with his model and muse Jane Morris pictured in this portrait from our collection.

Perlascura (Jane Morris). Dante Gabriel Rossetti, 1871. Red and brown chalk heightened with white on pale green paper.

‘Mount Tatsu in Harima Province’
By Utagawa Hiroshige (1858)
•
Ukiyo-e, translated as 'Picture of the Floating World', refers to Japanese paintings and woodblock prints that depicted images of everyday life in Japan. These works were mass produced during the Edo period, and often featured famous actors, renowned landscapes, heroic tales and folk stories.
•
The making of an ukiyo-e print typically involved a publisher, a designer, a block-cutter and a printer. The artist would provide an ink drawing on thin paper, which would be pasted to a block of cherry wood and rubbed with oil until the top layers of paper could be pulled away, leaving a guide for the block-cutter. The block-cutter would then cut away the non-black areas of the images, leaving raised segments that were inked to leave an impression on the paper. The original drawings were always destroyed in this process.

This ukiyo-e print by Utagawa Hiroshige shows a view of Mount Tatsu in Harima Province, the southwestern part of present-day Hyōgo Prefecture.⠀

    British Photographer Julia Margaret Cameron was born #onthisday in 1815.⠀
⠀
Cameron is considered one of the most important and innovative photographers of the 19th century. Taking up photography late in her life, Cameron's career in the art form spanned only 11 years. In that time, she became known for her soft focus portraits of celebrities, family and acquaintances - often in an allegorical style. She was less concerned with the sharp detail of her photos and more so with capturing the emotional state of the sitter, incorporating unconventional streaks and irregularities into the final print.⠀
⠀
This work, called Ophelia, features Mary Pinnock and was taken by Cameron in 1867. We have many more photographs by Cameron in our collection, which you can see on display by appointment in our Western Art Print Room.⠀
