Let me give a short appendix to the Anamorphosis Days in London.
One of the most remarkable lecture was about Niceron by James Hunt Professor of Physics at the University of Guelph in Canada.
Jean-François Niceron (1613-1646) was a French painter, designer and professor of mathematics in the convent of the Minim friars in Paris and in Rome. His study of natural philosophy concentrated on geometrical optics and perspective, to which he dedicated a successful book: La perspective curieuse ou Magie artificielle des effets merveilleux (Paris, 1638).
Marcel Duchamp, who was familiar with the works of Niceron (and other figures of perspective and anamorphoses, for example Bosse, Maignan, de Breuil, Kircher as I know from Jean Clair's article: Marcel Duchamp at la tradition des perspecteurs) wrote a Latin anagram for the Latin name of Father Jean-François Niceron:
FRATER IOANNES FRANCISCUS NICERONUS
RARUS FERIENS TURCAS, ANNON CONFICIES?
which means: What did you put together from these scattered Turks? – there is no doubt that this sentence is about the illustration that James Hunt was dealing with dissoving the secret of it in a brilliant way. It is the LXIX illustration in Nicerons' La Perspective Curieuse.
Also I have written an anagram in Hungarian:
E RÁCSOS ARCÚ FÉRFIÚN NINCSEN RONTÁS
which means: on this man's face with grids, there is not any mistakes.
I made some English anagrams too in my poor English, please forgive me and please continue the line if you like….
