M. C. Escher, Images of Mathematics…

Escher’s work covered a variety of subjects throughout his life. His early love of portraits, Roman and Italian landscapes and of nature, eventually gave way to regular division of the plane.. Over 150 colorful and recognizable works testify to Escher’s ingenuity and vision. He managed to capture the notion of hyperbolic space on a fixed 2-dimensional plane as well as translating the principles of regular division onto a number of 3-dimensional objects such as spheres, columns and cubes. A number of his prints combine both 2 and 3-dimensional images with startling effect.. His art continues to amaze and wonder millions of people all over the world. In his work we recognize his keen observation of the world around us and the expressions of his own fantasies. . M.C. Escher shows us that reality is wondrous, comprehensible and fascinating….

The Fantastic World of M. C. Escher

This documentary explores the art and life of M.C. Escher. The Dutch graphic artist Maurits Corneille Escher was born in June 17, 1898. His bizarre renderings of distorted perspectives, visual puns, and optical illusions made him a unique figure in the art world and a pop icon in the 1960s and 1970s. It seemed that an Escher print, with images flowing into one another, adorned most college dormitory rooms. His mesmerizing designs even made their way into the handiwork of South American Indians when his art was shown to them by a Peace Corps worker. Interviews with friends and a look at his sources of inspiration in Italy and France give insight into the lively mind of this artist. Computer animated re-creations of Escher’s work, along with explanations from mathematicians, help the viewer understand and appreciate the mathematical precision and amazing intricacy of the designs.

M. C. Escher

Maurits Cornelis Escher, Mauk para os familiares e amigos, nasceu a 17 de Junho de 1898 em Leeuwarden, uma cidade no norte da Holanda. Filho de um engenheiro civil, cedo foi encorajado por seu pai a aprender carpintaria. Durante esse tempo desenvolveu o gosto pelo trabalho com madeira e aprendeu técnicas que utilizaria mais tarde nas xilogravuras.

Em 1919, ingressou na Escola de Arquitectura e Artes Decorativas de Haarlem, onde viria a trocar o curso de Arquitectura pelas Artes Gráficas. Contou aí com o incentivo do professor de técnicas de gravura artística Samuel Jesserun de Mesquita, judeu de origem portuguesa, com quem manteve contacto até 1944, altura em que Mesquita e sua família foram assassinadas pelos nazis.
