Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972)

On Friday I like to blog about an artist I admire.

This week the Dutch graphic designer M.C. Escher.
He is famous for his mathematically inspired woodcuts, linographs and mezzotints.

In the Hague, in a former Palace of Queen Emma, there is an permanent exhibition of his work.
It's named the Escher museum, more information can be found here
The museum features a permanent display of a large number of his works

In his work is so much to discover.
Day and night

He travelled a lot as you can see in his work.
