On the occasion of International Earth Day, Miguel Peiró, doctor in particle physics and cosmology and director of the Academy of Art and Science, reveals with Mastercard the beauty and complexity of our planet, in a fascinating tour of our permanent collection.

Art and science come together in a journey through four works that invite us to reflect on the interrelationship between nature and human beings. From the changing city in Rue Saint-Honoré in the Afternoon. Effect of Rain by Pissarro, to the ordered chaos in Bottle and Fruit-Dish by Juan Gris, to the emergent properties in Woman with a Parasol in a Garden by Renoir and the non-linearity in Christ in the Storm on the Sea of Galilee by Jan Brueghel the Elder.

On this Earth Day, we should remember that our planet is a stunning, complex and wonder-filled place.
