About the picture:
In the early years of the 20th century, the revolutionary scientific and mathematical ideas of relativity and multi-dimensional geometry captured the popular imagination. Some art historians say these undercurrents helped inspire an artistic revolution. Abandoning the classical rendering of three-dimensional space, a group of artists that came to be called the Cubists created works with fragmented images and multiple view planes. This 1912 work, "Guitar on a Table," by Pablo Picasso is an example.

The multi-dimensional geometry that so intrigued the Cubists can be described with the tpoics we study in this course.
