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
