Formal portrait of famed Norwegian mathematician Niels Henrik Abel, which was hanging on the wall of Atle Selberg's office on the Institute for Advanced Study campus. This appears to be a pastel of an often reproduced portrait of Abel by the Norweigan painter Johan Gørbitz (1782-1853). The drawing is under an oval mat in a gilt wooden frame that is stamped on the verso by the framer in Stockholm, Sweden.
