Art Appreciation: M.C. Escher

M.C. Escher, Print Gallery, 1956

“A person who is lucidly aware of the miracles that surround him, who has learned to bear up under loneliness, has made quite a bit of progress on the road to wisdom, or am I off target?”

-Letter to his son Arthur, November 5, 1955

Of the books I’ve perused of Escher’s art, “The Magic of M. C. Escher” is as good as it gets.
