As has been mentioned before on this blog, C.H Waddington’s wide-ranging interests also encompassed art, architecture and visual design. In 1969 he published Behind Appearance, a detailed study of the relationship between art and the natural sciences. But I for one was unaware that Waddington was a painter himself, so we were delighted recently when Dr Robert Root-Bernstein (Professor of Physiology at Michigan University who is researching scientists that are also artists) sent us images of some of Waddington’s artwork. They are mounted here with the kind permission of Waddington’s daughters, Professor Dame Caroline Humphrey and Professor Dusa McDuff. We hope you enjoy them!
