Trouvelot worked with the Lick Observatory's first director, Edward S. Holden, at the U.S. Naval Observatory while Holden was a professor of astronomy there. It seems they continued to communicate throughout Holden's tenure at the Lick. We wonder how illustrations by Trouvelot and other artists ultimately impacted the way astronomers in the early years of the Lick perceived the cosmos, as well as how astronomical illustrations shaped the photographic images they produced.
