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.

WEEK 5 – M. C. ESCHER

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‘.
