Description

An amazing gift for a mathematician or a programmer – a portrait of Ada Lovelace, daughter of Lord Byron, the first ever computer programmer.

Augusta Ada King-Noel, Countess of Lovelace (née Byron; 10 December 1815 – 27 November 1852) was an English mathematician and writer, chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage’s proposed mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. She was the first to recognise that the machine had applications beyond pure calculation, and created the first algorithm intended to be carried out by such a machine. As a result, she is often regarded as the first to recognise the full potential of a “computing machine” and the first computer programmer (Wikipedia)

The pattern is based on the watercolor portrait by Alfred Edward Chalon. It is carefully hand edited to contain only 32 colors and minimal amount of confetti.
