Alan Turing, English Mathematician art print by the Cambridge based design company True Tourist and lovingly printed just outside Cambridge at specialist art printers. These A2 art prints are produced on acid-free paper (Omega Rag 310 gsm) using archival inks to guarantee that they last a lifetime without fading or loss of colour. All art prints include a white border around the image to allow for future framing if desired.
This design celebrates the life of Alan Turing (1912-54), English mathematician. Turing was educated at Kings College Cambridge and Princeton. Among other stunning achievements he is probably best known for his work during the Second World War. During the War he worked as a code breaker at Bletchley Park, Britain's codebreaking centre. In 1939-40 Turing helped design the British Bombe, which could break any Enigma-enciphered message. In later years he worked on Artificial Intelligence and is still recognised today as one of the most influential figures in this field. Sadly he committed suicide when prosecuted for his homosexuality, at that time a criminal offence. After many decades he was finally pardoned and today The Alan Turing law is now an informal term for the law in the United Kingdom which serves as an amnesty law to pardon men who were cautioned or convicted under historical legislation that outlawed homosexual acts.
