Escher, was a Dutch graphic artist who was specialised in mathematically inspired art. He created numerous mind-bending woodcuts, lithographs, and mezzotints that play with mathematically based concepts such as impossible objects, reflections on perspective, symmetry, and infinity, as well as tessellations. Despite Escher’s belief that he had no real mathematical ability, he surrounded himself with highly educated people and was adept in many fields of study. Escher was able to transform his imaginative and often humorous ideas into optical illusions and impossible realities. Whimsical, yet always executed with astounding technical precision. * Please note: condition reports and additional photos are available upon request.
