Abstract

In this essay, our main aim is to identify the similarities between the techniques used by the 19th and 20th century painters, and scientists dealing with the Finite-Difference/Finite-Element methods. First, we discuss the concept of representation in art, together with its mathematical formulation. We next formulize the perception, and conclude with a discussion about the analogies between artistic movements and some concepts of the Finite-Element Method.
