A gorgeous, Modernist rendering of Berne, Switzerland, where Albert Einstein conceived his Theory of Special Relativity while working in the Patent Office here. In Alan Lightman's novella Einstein's Dreams, we first encounter Berne as such: "Every afternoon, the townspeople of Berne convene at the west end of Kramgasse. There, at four minutes to three, the Zytgloggeturm pays tribute to time." This Cubist rendering, with its bright red and blue shifts, might let you see Berne the way Einstein saw it.
