M.C.Escher homepage people directory M.C.Escher The Dutch graphic artist Maurits Cornelius Escher , b. June 17, 1898, d. Mar. 27, 1972, explored a strange world of optical illusion, visual puns, and distorted perspectives in his work. He dealt with the theme of metamorphosis and change in such prints as Verbum (1942) and Metamorphosis (1939-40), which portray a gradual transformation of one shape into another. Escher created a visual paradox in the lithograph Relativity (1953) by combining three separate perspectives into a unified, coherent whole. His work has become increasingly popular because of its unique combination of humor, logic, and meticulous precision with visual trickery. Bibliography:

M.C. Escher (1898-1972)
Special thanks to the Microsoft Corporation for permission to use following biographical information from
M.C. Escher was a Dutch graphic artist, who is noted for his distinctive prints depicting intricate interlocking patterns and optical illusions. He was especially accomplished in lithography and wood engraving. Escher’s early work consists mainly of landscapes and townscapes, but beginning about 1936 his work became increasingly concerned with scenes of his own creation, especially with the repeating patterns and spatial illusions for which he is best known. Escher’s first images in this realm took the form of elaborate patterns in which repeated figures of stylized animals, birds, or fish densely interlock, leaving no spaces between the figures. From about 1940 his work became more fantastic in its spatial effects. In images of bizarre buildings, Escher ingeniously toyed with the viewer’s perceptions, creating such optical illusions as staircases that appear to lead both upward and downward in the same direction. He also explored the perceptual conflict created by a surface that appears to be both flat and three-dimensional. In the lithograph Reptiles (1943), for example, parts of a stylized pattern of interlocking alligators seem to come to life, walking off the edge of the paper. Although Escher had no training in mathematics or sciences, his precise and analytical approach to the visual world has had an especially strong appeal to mathematicians and to psychologists interested in visual perception.

M.C. Escher about the artist...
Maurits Cornelis Escher, born in Leeuwarden, 17 june 1898, received his first instruction in drawing at the secondary school in Arnhem, by F.W. van der Haagen, who helped him to develop his graphic aptitude by teaching in the technique of the linoleum cut. From 1919 to 1922 he studied at the School of Architecture and Ornamental Design in Haarlem, where he was instructed in the graphic techniques by S. Jessurun de Mesquita, whose strong personality greatly influenced escher's further development, as graphic artist. In 1922 he went to Italy and 1924 settled in Rome. During his 10 year stay in Italy he made many study-tours, visiting Abruzzia, the Amalfi coast, Calabria, Sicily, Corsica and Spain. In 1934 he left Italy, spent two years in Switzerland and five years in Brussels before settling in Baarn (Holland) in 1941, where he died on march 27, 1972, at the age of 73 years.

MAURITS CORNELIUS ESCHER Nacque a Leeuwarden, in Olanda, il 17 giugno del 1898. Oggi la sua casa natale è stata trasformata in un museo, il Princessehof Museum. Tra il 1919 e il '22 frequentò la Scuola di architettura e arti decorative di Haarlem, sotto la guida del grafico portoghese Samuel Jesserun de Mesquita, che ebbe una notevole influenza sul suo orientamento artistico. Qui scoprì la passione per la xilografia, una tecnica che consiste nell'incidere un disegno su una superficie di legno e con questa produrre delle stampe su carta. Tra il 1922 e il '35 Escher visse in Italia, viaggiando a lungo attraverso il Paese in cerca di ispirazione. Le sue stampe riscuotevano un discreto successo nelle mostre. Nell'estate del 1923, a Ravello, conobbe Jetta Umiker, figlia di un industriale svizzero, e un anno dopo la sposò. Nel 1936, in compagnia della moglie, visitò in Spagna la moschea di Cordoba e l'Alhambra, la fortezza araba di Granada. Non era la prima volta che ammirava le sale decorate dell'Alhambra - c'era già stato nel 1922 - ma questa volta rimase particolarmente colpito dagli ornamenti moreschi del palazzo, che studiò e riprodusse con l'aiuto di Jetta. Nel 1937 la famiglia Escher si trasferì a Bruxelles, in Belgio. L'artista abbandonò la produzione di paesaggi per dedicarsi ai disegni astratti, che riproducevano le

M. C. (Maurits) Escher
M. C. Escher was born June 17, 1898 in Leeuwarden, Netherlands. His parents always referred to him as Mauk.
Actually, he was raised by his father, George, and his step-mother, Sarah. His father was an engineer, which may
have later influenced his work. The family hoped for him to be an architect, but he failed his final exams. Escher began
his art career with drawing and woodcut technique. In 1920, Escher enrolled at the School for Architecture and Decorative
Arts at Haarlem, trying to please his father's hope for him to study architecture. Here he met Samuel Jesserum de Mequita,
a graphics arts teacher. This teacher taught him woodcut techniques and let him experiment. He frequently sketched
landscapes, plants and insects. Many of the plants and insects appear in his later work. The artist is said to have been
so detailed that he selected the shape, quantity and size of slices of cheese, so they exactly covered his bread. Escher married
Jetta Umiker on June 12, 1924 and they had three children. He and his family traveled extensively with Escher and his

An seinem Schaffen kann man eindrucksvoll zeigen, welche Faszination die Mathematik auch für den interessierten Laien ausüben kann.
Eines seiner berühmtesten Werke ist 'Belvedere' (1958). Durch das Zusammenfügen zweier in sich logischer perspektivischer Bildhälften wird eine widerspruchsvolle Ansicht des Gesamtobjekts erzeugt. Das gleiche Prinzip liegt dem Escherwürfel zugrunde, den der Narr  am linken unteren Bildrand in seinen  Händen hält. Mittlerweile ist der Escherwürfel so etwas wie das inoffizielle Emblem der angewandten Geometrie geworden. Das Möbiusband        Der Wasserfall  Bergauf und doch bergab

Maurits Cornelis Escher
Op zeventien juni 1898, zo'n 100 jaar geleden, werd in het Prinsessenhof te Leeuwarden "Mauk" geboren. Hij was de zoon van de hydraulisch ingenieur G.A. Escher en zijn vrouw Sarah Gleichmann.
Deze pagina gaat over M.C. Escher. Deze Nederlandse graficus leefde van 1898 tot 1972. Ondanks dat hij in de kunstenaarswereld niet zo'n goede naam had, was hij op het eind van zijn leven razend populair bij het grote publiek. Zijn bekendheid had hij te danken aan zijn onwerkelijke afbeeldingen en oneindige figuren. Ook werden zijn ruimtelijke veelhoeken vrij bekend en veel gebruikt in wiskundige boekwerken.
Escher kwam uit een vrij rijk gezin uit Leeuwarden. Hij kreeg al vroeg samen met zijn broers les in het houtsnijden, wat hem later goed van pas is gekomen. Hij werd erg gesteund door zijn ouders, ondanks dat zijn vader graag wou dat hij hem opvolgde in zijn beroep. In 1903 verhuisde hij naar Arnhem, waar hij vanaf 1912 de middelbare school volgde. Dat ging hem slecht af en hij haalde zijn eindexamen niet. Hij vertrok voor een jaar naar Delft, maar ook daar ging het mis, hij werd zowel lichamelijk als geestelijk ziek. Hierna verhuisde hij naar Haarlem om een opleiding architectuur te volgen, maar zijn grote grafische talent werd al snel ontdekt en hij legde zich toe op grafiekles van S. Jesserun de Mesquita. Hier vond Escher wat hij zocht en werd gelukkig. In zijn werk in deze tijd, kun je zien dat hij nog zoekend was naar zijn eigen stijl. Hij experimenteerde met verschillende vormgevingen.

The Dutch artist Maurits C. Escher (1898-1972) was a draftsman, book illustrator, tapestry designer, and muralist, but his primary work was as a printmaker. Born in Leeuwarden, Holland, the son of a civil engineer, Escher spent most of his childhood in Arnhem.
Most recognized for spatial illusions, impossible buildings, repeating geometric patterns (tessellations), and his incredible techniques in woodcutting and lithography.
In Escher's work what you see the first time is most certainly not all there is to see.
