Six-Set Venn Diagram

Six-Set Venn Diagram, 14″x18″, acrylic on canvas, 2013

This painting illustrates a Venn diagram designed by A.W.F. Edwards to show all the possible intersections of six sets. The design was for a stained-glass window in memory of John Venn.
(Today the term “Venn diagram” is commonly applied to any diagram of intersecting sets, but if only some of the possible logical relations are shown, “Euler diagram” is the correct term.)
