Einstein_wigner_diptych

Eugene Wigner (2002-1995) and Albert Einstein (1879-1955). The 1963 Nobel Laureate in Physics, Wigner had first met Einstein while attendin physics seminars in Berlin in the early 1920s. He regarded himself as one of Einstein’s “younger friends,” just as I regarded mysel as one of Professor Wigner’s younger friends. I drew the ink sketch in 1979.
