""Innumerable readers made me aware of something strange. They made me
look around and recognize fractals in the works of artists since time
immemorial. I now collect such works. An extraordinary amount of
arrogance is present in any claim of having been the first in "inventing"
something. It's an arrogance that some enjoy, and others do not. Now I
reach beyond arrogance when I proclaim that fractals had been pictured
forever but their true role had remained unrecognized and waited for me
to be uncovered."'

Benoit Mandelbrot
