The Graphic Work of M. C. Escher (part 2)

2013/04/14 § 2 Comments

“(T)here came a moment when it seemed as though scales fell from my eyes. I discovered that technical mastery was no longer my sole aim, for I became gripped by another desire, the existence of which I had never suspected. Ideas came into my mind quite unrelated to graphic art, notions which so fascinated me that I longed to communicate them to other people. This could not be achieved through words, for these thoughts were not literary ones, but mental images of a kind that can only be made comprehensible to others by presenting them as visual images.”

(Maurits Cornelis Escher)

Curl-up, lithograph, 1951, 17×23.5 cm
