Artist of the Week 5

Sorry this post is a little late, but the past week has been pretty busy, with visiting my parents, my baby shower, etc.


This week’s ‘Artist of the Week‘ is one of the world’s most famous graphic artists; Maurits Cornelis Escher (known as M. C. Escher). I first came across the Dutch artist’s work while in school, and was immediately fascinated by his work.

He is most famous for his so-called “impossible” constructions, and his “transformation” prints, which most of you will probably recognise. However, he also created more realistic work, which isn’t as well-known.

My personal favourite of his work is his 1935 Lithograph ‘Hand with Reflecting Sphere‘.


Here are more examples of his work;
