His paper argues that "there is in fact a geometrical order to painting, regardless of the particular form of expression. There is a deep structure that unites visual elements in a painting; one need only ask the right visual questions." PowerPoint presentations accompany the paper. - St. John Eats the Scroll - The Four Riders of the Apocalypse - The Sea Monster and the Beast with Lamb's Horns Professor Martel's background: http://mathforum.org/te/exchange/hosted/martel/background.html \|/ TEACHER EXCHANGE http://mathforum.org/te/ If you have a lesson idea that you would like to contribute to the Math Forum @ Drexel, please visit the Teacher Exchange area of our site. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- CHECK OUT OUR WEB SITE: The Math Forum http://mathforum.org/ Ask Dr. Math http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ Problems of the Week http://mathforum.org/pow/ Mathematics Library http://mathforum.org/library/ Math Tools http://mathforum.org/mathtools/ Teacher2Teacher http://mathforum.org/t2t/ Discussion Groups http://mathforum.org/discussions/ Join the Math Forum http://mathforum.org/join.forum.html Send comments to the Math Forum Internet Newsletter editors Donations http://deptapp.drexel.edu/ia/GOL/giftsonline1_MF.asp _o \o_ __| \ / |__ o _ o/ \o/ __|- __/ \__/o \o | o/ o/__/ /\ /| | \ \ / \ / \ /o\ / \ / \ / | / \ / \ |
