M.C. Escher died on this day in 1972
27 March, 2017 - 28 March, 2017
M. C. Escher (17 June 1898 – 27 March 1972), the creator of impossible constructions and studies of infinity, was a Dutch graphic artist who made mathematically inspired woodcuts, lithographs, and mezzotints.
He is famous all around the world, known as the creator of interlocking geometric patterns which gradually change into entirely different forms.
Many of the worlds he created revolve around impossible objects such as the Necker cube and the Penrose triangle.
We highlight the retrospective presented first at Palazzo Reale di Milano and also other major exhibitions dedicated to the artist have been presented in Italy in the latest years: in Rome, at the Chiostro del Bramante and in Reggio Emilia at the Magnani Roca Foundation.
