Linda Dalrymple Henderson is the preeminent scholar of geometry, physics, and the occult in the history of twentieth-century art. Her classic book meticulously presented a new perspective on the spatial imagination at the heart of modern art, and it is here strengthened by a substantial 'reintroduction.' Time has been very good to the book. Given subsequent developments in the computational modeling of complex space, theories of multidimensionality, and, most important, increased interactions among the arts, mathematics, and sciences, it is a classic whose relevance keeps on growing. -- Douglas Kahn, Research Professor, National Institute for Experimental Arts, University of New South Wales, Sydney The first edition of this book was a monumental achievement in the scholarly recuperation of one of modern art's most compelling and influential obsessions, the fourth dimension and non-Euclidean space. Extending her analyses of these strands of scientific thought on art and artists up to the later twentieth century, Linda Dalrymple Henderson not only provides a deeper understanding of this paradigmatic art-science interaction, but also demonstrates that her classic book remains highly pertinent. -- Mark A. Cheetham, Department of Art, University of Toronto

Reading this book enriches our knowledge about the interrelation between the different fields of science, culture and art. It is a whole new world waiting to be discovered. * Mathematical Reviews * I think I can say without fear of contradiction that this book is the definitive work on the relationship of non-Euclidean geometry, the fourth dimension, however conceived, and modern art. -- Rob Harle * Leonardo *
