Pacioli’s portrait was painted by Jacopo de Barbari (1440–1516) in 1495, a year after the publication of his work Summa de aritmetica geometria proportioni et proportionalita, which summarized the work of his predecessors from antiquity to the end of the fifteenth century.

We can take this to mean that phenomena which are important for researchers to discover exist at the points where they encounter dissymmetry.
