"The World Of M.C. Escher" With Texts By M.C. Escher and J.L. Locher (published by Harry N. Abrams Inc., Publishers, New York 1971) Part 3

 Maurits Cornelis Escher (Netherlands, 1898-1972) is one of the best known graphic artists of the 20th century - most people would be familiar with works such as "Relativity" (1953) and "Waterfall" (1961). I particularly like his pattern works and the way one object gradually changes - methodically and with precision - into another. The artist's official website is:  It's got an extensive collection of his works and you could even purchase some of the prints (modern copies I imagine - not the originals). I was annoyed to find out that there was an exhibition of Escher's work in Edinburgh but it finished last month and I missed it! It's now moved to Dulwich Picture Gallery in London.
