    One. Two, Three...Infinity, paperback cover, 1965
    Oil on canvas, mounted on board

    This illustration appeared on the cover of George Gamow's famous book on mathematics, One Two Three...Infinity, Bantam Books, 1965.

    "One of the truly challenging books ever written on science and scientific theory. Its subtitle suggests the direction of the discussion, "Facts and Speculation on Science" -- numbers, properties of space, law of disorder and much more. An invigorating romp into the world of science."
