Saw this last night on the PBS Newshour:

quote:
The late Dutch artist M.C. Escher is perhaps best known for his tessellations that fool the eye, like “Sky and Water I,” where birds in the air trade off negative space with fish underwater. But there are 200 lithographs, woodcuts and drawings on display in the biggest-ever U.S. exhibit of Escher’s work at Brooklyn’s Industry City. Hari Sreenivasan went on a tour with the exhibit's manager, Johanna Guttmann.

Sounded like a fun trip if you're in the area.

I like his work.

Stayed at a B&B in England. There were several Eschers on the walls. Probably prints.

Want a stained glass piece to go in a clerestory window. A man in Golden does some Escher like work. Maybe.

The guy who taught my graduate labor economics class had an original Escher.

This one, I think.



At some point he had to pull it off his wall and store it (at a museum, I think). The thing had gotten too valuable and was running up his insurance bill.
