Résumé

There are some people who find it easier to absorb abstruse theories when encouraged by picturesque analogies. There are also some people, mathematicians, who hold such assistance in austere contempt. Pictorialism, however, is no new thing in expositions of relativity, and I will not apologise for the following attempt to introduce a little more. The object of this note is to suggest ways of visualising some of the metrics which are of importance in the general theory of relativity. For each metric two pictures are supplied; they may be called (A) geometrical and (B) dynamical.
