I have found another painting which involves mathematics.

It is a painting of the English mathematician John Wallis (1616-1703).

It is made in 1648 by the Dutch painter Ferdinand Bol and is called:

“Portret van een mathematicus” (Portret of a mathematician).

Nice one!

ReplyDeleteCould you guess the problem he was working on? :)

I couldn't! of course. But by now, everybody knows I'm no Mathematician at all.
