A Tale of Two Portraits. A Note on Two Alleged Images of Thomas Harriot

Abstract

This article is an extended reprint of one published at the invitation of the late Professor Gordon Batho (1929-2013) in The Harrioteer: The Newsletter of the Thomas Harriot Seminar, University of Durham, April 2000. The article discusses the provenance of a famous portrait displayed at Trinity College, Oxford, which is widely described as being of the celebrated English mathematician Thomas Harriot (c.1560-1621). However, as we discuss here, the evidence for this attribution is weak, and unless additional information becomes available, the only conclusion to be drawn is that no documented portrait of Harriot survives.
