Now You See It, Now You Don’t

“Mathematics may be art, but to the general public it is
a black art, more akin to magic and mystery. This presents
a constant challenge to the mathematical community: to explain
how art fits into our subject and what we mean by beauty.”

— Sir Michael Atiyah, quoted here on April 4, 2016
