Collection: M.C. Escher

Maurits Cornelis Escher, commonly known as M.C. Escher, was a Dutch graphic artist who is famous for his intricate and mind-bending prints. Born in 1898 in Leeuwarden, Netherlands, Escher studied graphic arts in school and later traveled extensively in Europe, taking inspiration from the art he encountered. He is known for his mathematical and geometric prints, which play with concepts such as infinity, perspective, and impossible architecture. His work gained international recognition in the 1950s and 1960s and continues to inspire artists, mathematicians, and designers to this day. Some of his most famous works include "Relativity", "Drawing Hands", and "Ascending and Descending". Escher passed away in 1972, but his legacy lives on through his unique and innovative art.
