While still a student, M.C. Escher made several attempts to create a continuous pattern from the repetition of motifs. A sophisticated example of this is ‘Eight heads’, which is Escher’s first full tessellation. Eight different heads are cut into a woodblock – four the right way up and four upside down. When repeat printed, they create a continuous pattern of interlocking motifs. #NGVEXN #Escher • M. C.

. Napoli🇮🇹, dicembre 2018 PAN | PALAZZO DELLE ARTI NAPOLI. . Maurits Cornelis ESCHER. L’incisore e grafico olandese conosciuto per le sue incisioni su legno, litografie e mezzetinte che tendono a presentare costruzioni impossibili, esplorazioni dell'infinito, tassellature del piano e dello spazio e motivi a geometrie interconnesse che cambiano gradualmente in forme via via differenti. «Lo stupore è il sale della terra»: questa frase è stata spesso pronunciata da Escher e ben rappresenta la sua opera, in cui grafica, illusioni ottiche e studi scientifici si fondono, creando immagini stupefacenti.

From the beginning of his work on tessellations, Escher was interested in finding ways of representing infinity. This posed a significant challenge for the artist and he explored different pictorial solutions over the years. In the mid 1950s he developed tessellations with regularly diminishing motifs towards the centre of the composition, where the limit was reached of the infinitely small and infinitely many. Smaller and smaller is the first of these. The reduction of form and regularly alternating colours of the lizards create a complex and highly decorative pattern. #NGVEXN #Escher • M. C.

There is something wrong with this picture. In fact, that is the point. M.C. Escher loved to make these impossible images. He made hundreds of etches and lithographs and many have these perspective anomalies. They made him famous all over the world. Even today, or actually at any time, there are several exhibitions of his work held around the globe. On the site mcescher.com you can check if there is one near you. But for all his fame and artistry, his work is not considered Art. He is not listed in lexicons of artists and I don’t think I have ever seen him mentioned in any book I studied in university. This obviously is an injustice that needs to be dealt with. So if you do plan on writing a book on art history you know what to do, even if its only in a footnote. Belvedere, M. C. Escher, lithograph, first printed in 1958. . #arthistory #artoninstagram #escher #mcescher #belvedere #impossiblecube #artjustice

Played some Necromunda for the first time in a long time. Love this game so much. Some Escher on Escher violence turned spectacularly violent.

Maurits Cornelis Escher 🧐 Arquitecto enamorado del arte, su curioso mundo que nos abre a repeticiones y perspectivas imposibles. Sus grabados y teselados de los que podría estar horas mirando y aún descubriría nuevas formas. Inspiracional y majestuoso es lo que me sugiere y me quedo con la lección que el objeto deja de ser más importante que el espacio que deja...😍 Casi dos años después sigo recordando esta maravillosa exposición con sumo respeto. 🙏🏻 #interiordesign #madrid #inspiracion #sbtinteriordesign #escher #palaciodegaviria #formas #circlelimit #arribayabajo

Cool in an M. C. Escher kind of way, or just bizarre? Hudson Yards, New York City's new $25 billion urban complex, draws mixed reviews. The new complex "is the largest real estate development" in the city since Rockefeller Center was built in the 1930s, according to the New York Transit Museum. It includes everything from condos to clothing stores to restaurants, as well as eye-catching installations, including a large spiral staircase dubbed the "Vessel," which includes 154 interconnecting flights of stairs. ⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ #hudsonyards #escher #vessel #vesselhudsonyards ⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ 📸: Mark Lennihan, @APnews | Timothy A.

We were cheering on the million dollar duo, Lordan (by Lordanos) and Nayel Nassar in yesterday’s AIG million dollar Grand Prix. Nayel and Lordan have earned this title twice in the past among many other accomplishments and came in second yesterday, another job well done. “There’s no shame to losing to Beezie, and the horse feels great. He’s 15 and still jumping fresh, so I’m really happy about that, and I’m looking forward to Ocala next week.” Lordan and Lord Adonis share the same sire, Lordanos, leading USEF jumper sire. Lordanos’ breeding record has proved reliably to pass on his willingness to perform, rideability and ability to jump. https://www.eurequine.com/lordadonis #eurequine #eurequinestallions #Landkonig #Landkoenig #Rubignon #lordadonis #Relevantus #Wilddance #DonRoncalli #Escher #Donarweiss #Dubarry #grandprix #usef #lordanos #success #consistency #reliability

La opere grafiche di #Escher sono nettamente intese a comunicare un determinato processo di pensiero, di cui egli stesso così parla: «Le idee che stanno alla loro base derivano dalla mia ammirazione e dal mio stupore nei confronti delle leggi che regolano il mondo in cui viviamo. Chi si meraviglia di qualcosa si rende consapevole di tale meraviglia. Nel momento in cui sono aperto e sensibile nei confronti degli enigmi che ci circondano e ana- lizzando le mie osservazioni, entro in contatto con la matematica». Metamorfosi II- parte 3 7mt x 20cm. #MassimoScognamiglio

Escher keek met veel verwondering naar de natuur. Een berglandschap, loofbos of grasveld was voor hem nooit zo maar een berglandschap, loofbos of grasveld. Hij zag details die niemand anders zag en hij kon genieten tot in zijn diepste vezels van alles wat de natuur hem bood. Lees over de wonderen die Escher in zijn directe omgeving zag op https://buff.ly/2TFkpOQ Escher looked full of wonder towards nature. For him, a mountain landscape, deciduous forest or summery lawn was never just a mountain landscape, deciduous forest or summery lawn. He saw details that no one else saw and he was able to enjoy to the fullest what nature had to offer him.
