M.C. Escher - Mauritius Cornelis Escher (June 17, 1898 – March 27, 1972), referred to as M.C. Escher, was a Dutch graphic artist, known for his often mathematically inspired woodcuts, lithographs, & mezzotints. His most famous so-called impossible structures include work such as Ascending and Descending, Relativity, and his Transformation Prints. 

Escher's work continues to fascinate both young and old across a broad spectrum of interests. He was a man studied and greatly appreciated by respected mathematicians, scientists and crystallographers, yet he had no formal training in math or science, and Escher considered himself neither an artist nor a mathematician.   Intricate repeating patterns, mathematically complex structures, spatial perspectives all require a second look and in Escher's work what you see the first time is most certainly not all there is to see.    Click here to return.
