Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Presenting the structurally unthinkable as though it were a law of nature   M.C. Escher was born in 1898 in Leeuwarden (Netherlands). He received his first drawing lessons during secondary school from F.W. van der Haagen, who also taught him the block printing, thus fostering Escher’s innate graphic talents.

From 1912 to 1922 he studied at the School of Architecture and Ornamental Design in Haarlem, where he was instructed in graphic techniques by S. Jessurun de Mesquita, who greatly influenced Escher’s further artistic development. Between 1922 and 1934 the artist lived and worked in Italy. Afterwards Escher spent two years in Switzerland and five in Brussels before finally moving back to Barn in Holland, where he died in 1972.

M.C. Escher is not a surrealist drawing us into his dream world, but an architect of perfectly impossible worlds who presents the structurally unthinkable as though it were a law of nature. The resulting dimensional and perspectival illusions bring us into confrontation with the limitations of our sensory perception.   About the Series:
Each book in TASCHEN’s Basic Art series features:
  • a detailed chronological summary of the life and oeuvre of the artist, covering his or her cultural and historical importance
  • a concise biography
  • approximately 100 illustrations with explanatory captions

Review:
Renowned artist M.C. Escher is not a surrealist drawing us into his dream world, but an architect of perfectly impossible worlds who presents the structurally unthinkable as though it were a law of nature. Weird, beautiful, finely detailed illusions.

Book Description: Taschen, 2001. PaperBack. Book Condition: New. The graphic imagist nonpareil introduces and explains his magical world of virtual-like illusionism. Escher writes, 'Yet a mental image is something completely different from a visual image, and however much one exerts oneself, one cannever manage to capture the fullness of that perfection which hovers in the mind and which one thinks of, quite falsely, as something that is `seen'.' Seventy-six reproductions of woodcuts, engravings and lithographs depict this sublime artist's rigorous imagination. Includes `Classification and description of the numbered reproduction'. Unpgd.
