Escher, examples of his incredibly detailed prints are shown and analyzed with particular attention to his use of symmetry and geometrical figures. Patterns in the Italian countryside and mosaic tiles from Spain were two major influences in the printmaker's work, as was the work of mathematicians specializing in "impossible objects" which could be drawn, but not created in three dimensional space. Escher incorporated all of these elements to create a fantastic world described as an encounter between imagination and the culture of mathematics and science+-+37133841068906ocn001991101book19650.35MacGillavry, Caroline HenrietteFantasy & symmetry : the periodic drawings of M.C.
