M.C. Escher: The Graphic Work

Presenting the structurally unthinkable as though it were a law of nature M.C. Escher was born in 1898 in Leeuwarden (Netherlands). He received his first drawing lessons during secondary school from F.W. van der Haagen, who also taught him the block printing, thus fostering Escher's innate graphic talents.

M.C. Escher: The Graphic Work Reviews

  • Giuliana keimich

    Amazing combination of draw, math, shadow and creativity.

  • Paola Ghisalberti

    love travelling thru his art! magical!

  • Oana Sipos

    This guy was a genious and every sketch is a challenge for your mind. Recommended to #analyse.

  • Devero

    Un paio di anni fa li vidi dal vero, a una mostra a Roma, gli originali di Escher.

    Già nelle sue prime illustrazioni, realistiche, si intuisce qualcosa di come evolverà il suo stile e delle meraviglie che creerà.

    Per me resta uno dei migliori del XX secolo, meglio di artisti sopravvalutati come Picasso, Warhol o Matisse o Dalì.

    Sanatçının kendi sunumu olması bence bir artı. Çünkü tam anlamıyla ne düşündüğünü ve yapıtlarını oluştururken nasıl bir yol izlediğini ilk ağızdan öğrenebiliyoruz. Bunun dışında alışılmış sanat kitapları gibi sanatçının yaşamıyla ilgili detaylı bilgi bulunmuyor, bunun bir eksi olduğunu düşünmüyorum.

  • Joey

    This book contains art along with comments from the artist explaining what he was trying to accomplish and where he felt he did well and not so well. His words add a lot to the appreciation of the well known images. It's a fun book that would be great to get again to study and try recreating.

  • Susan

    I love that small children are drawn to this!

    Een mooi boek over Escher's werken. Ik heb eigenlijk niet echt de beschrijvingen gelezen die voor in het boek stonden, ik kwam voor de tekeningen. :P En die stelden zeker niet teleur. Er waren er zelfs een paar die ik nog niet kende, of die niet meteen een Oh, die, momentje aanwakkerde. Escher was echt briljant met zijn art, en dat allemaal zonder enig hulp van een computer, wat me nieuwsgierig maakt naar wat Escher nog meer had kunnen maken als hij nu nog had geleefd. :)

    Zeker een aanrader als j

    Zeker een aanrader als je, net als ik, geinteresseerd ben in Escher's art.

    Like most high school and college students, I went through an Escher phase. Without the aid of psychotropic substances or any sort of interest in vaguely mathematical patterns, mind you, so it didn't last long, but still, it happened, and this was the book I bought as it was going on. And, you know, it's a reprinting of various Escher pieces. At the time, I'd have probably rated it 5 stars, but now, it gets an "I'm no longer quite so impressed, but still appreciate the artistry involved" 3 star
