Seventeen Seventy-Six 11″x14″


Featured on July 1976 cover of BYTE Magazine


“We commissioned Robert Tinney to do an oil painting for the Bicentennial cover of BYTE. The theme is a humorous anachronism in several respects. The obvious anachronism is the 18th century philosopher and patriot sitting at a very 20th century hard copy terminal, holding a reference volume, America’s first best seller. It is not clear how the quill pen and ink output mechanism of the hard copy terminal works. There are more anachronisms in the picture, which we’ll leave to BYTE readers to point out. A full-size poster of the original painting in color is available from BYTE (see page 96).” – Editor’s note
