About
the picture:
In the early years of the 20th century, the revolutionary scientific
and mathematical ideas of relativity and multidimensional geometry
captured the popular imagination. Some art historians say these undercurrents
helped inspire an artistic revolution. Abandoning the classical rendering
of threedimensional 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 multidimensional geometry that so intrigued the Cubists eventualy
evolved into the subject of linear algebra that we study in this course.
