About This Item

escherreflectingsphere

Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972) was a Dutch graphic artist, most recognized for spatial illusions, impossible buildings, repeating geometric patterns (tessellations), and his incredible techniques in woodcutting and lithography. His work continues to fascinate both young and old across a broad spectrum of interests. His prints are a staple on the walls of university dormitories and faculty offices alike. He was a man studied and greatly appreciated by respected mathematicians, scientists and crystallographers yet he had no formal training in math or science. He was a humble man who considered himself neither an artist or mathematician.

The mathematical influence in his work emerged around 1936, when he was journeying the Mediterranean. Specifically, he became interested in order and symmetry after his journey to the Alhambra. Escher tried to improve upon the art works of the Moors using geometric grids as the basis for his sketches, which he then overlaid with additional designs. Intricate repeating patterns, mathematically complex structures, spatial perspectives all require a "second look." In Escher's work what you see at a glance is most certainly not all there is on display.

This is one of a series of Escher prints purchased and hung by the TB owner. This particular piece is called Reflecting Sphere--a wierd kind of self-portrait.
