ART AND PHYSICS by Leonard Shlain, p. 126

Comparing the innovations of Manet, Monet and Cesanne with Einstein’s special theory of relativity:

“The precognition of our three artists will become increasingly apparent as we compare the visual effects outside the train’s windows with the artist’s painterly styles.”

I have been enjoying my sporadic progress through this book.  It compares two fields of which I have only superficial knowledge, in an original way.

I appreciate the increase in my cultural and scientific vocabulary as I absorb what I can, then leave it alone, and return later, ready for more.
