Exhibition Tour—Picturing Math: Selections from the Department of Drawings and Prints

The Met Fifth Avenue - Gallery 690
Free with Museum admission

WEDNESDAY / APRIL 19 
10:30–11:30 A.M.

The visualization of mathematics has taken many forms since the advent of printing. Animated by tensions between the abstract and the figural, the geometric and the gestural, these works from The Met collection show how artists from the 15th century to contemporary times have engaged in the creation and communication of mathematical knowledge through the use and production of images.
