The Albert Einstein Memorial

In honor of theoretical physicist Albert Einstein’s 134th birthday today, we’re exploring the Albert Einstein Memorial located in central Washington, D.C. Known for creating hundreds of bronze sculptures and monuments, Robert Berks based this statue on a bust he sculpted from life at Einstein’s home in 1953. Berks depicted Einstein with papers in his hand and carved three equations into those manuscripts that represent Einstein’s important scientific advances: the theory of general relativity, the photoelectric effect and the equivalence of energy and matter.
