Great work, inspiring spirals!

P. W.T. Ruigrok2016-08-13 22:42:13
Zijn werk is een toonbeeld van creativiteit. Ieder die nadenkt hoe hij dit repeatig beeld heeft gemaakt, zoekt maar zal het maar moeilijk vinden

P Ruigrok2016-08-13 22:38:58
His work is magic

Bas van der Smit, Rotterdams beeldend kunstenaar, (1915-1996), had de litho "Drie Werelden" in bezit. Eschers intrigerend werk heeft mijn man erg beinvloed (etsen).

What a royal bummer to have to reinstall older programs to use this. What a waste of time.

Fanny Abregú2015-06-20 11:14:17
Hola: Estoy escribiendo un libro sobre los recursos de la narrativa postmoderna. No pude evitar el efecto Droste y Escher al hablar de la mise en abyme

Excellent work guys !!! just wonderful

Good Morning, My name is Claudio Nizzoli, I collaborate with Federico Giudiceandrea (the biggest european prive collector of MC Escher´s works). We are organizing Escher shows in Italy and in the future out of the country. We ask the permission to reproduce the video about the drought effect. KR Claudio Nizzoli

Bedankt voor de uitgebreide uiteenzetting van deze studie. Ik ben erg gefascineerd door de verborgen herhaling in de prentententoonstelling. Ik vraag me af, ik ben al een tijdje op zoek naar een afdruk/poster van dit werk zonder de witte signering in het midden, oftewel de ingevulde versie. Zijn deze uiteindelijk ook verkrijgbaar?

Ali Jaya Meilio2015-01-14 14:20:49
Great work guys... :D Much appreciated.

Wei-Tse Lin2015-01-08 14:52:42

Prachtig wiskundig in elkaar gezet door Escher. Echt n kunstenaar.

james2014-05-25 21:00:57
Timeless, no from before time. OK a dimension in addition to all others including time.

Philip Allin2014-02-21 04:22:07
Thanks for this site. I have completed 20 woodcarvings based on Escher designs.

Livio Scalmati2014-02-09 22:27:12
Very interesting. I visited toady 9 Feb 2014 the Reggio Emila Escher show collection in the Museum.

It was great fun exploring the contents of this site. Thanks for that. Make sure to check out Reinder s awesome realtime implementation of the discussed transformations (mentioned below)

Great, thank you !

the ratio six to five Mr. Escher draws contains beauty. The center reflects an infonate impossability. I often wonder when his creations inspires appreciation as the true work of art it is; was it for himself or others? Mr Escher can motivate beyond 1 2 3 4 five VI dimentions

With the help of this site and an email response from de Smit I had all the resources needed to do one of my undergrad projects for Abstract Algebra. Thank you for such a great web page.

Hi, I implemented a webgl shader (running on chrome) showing the transformation of Escher on a 3D-city:

I was totally caught by your five steps!

Andrew Hjermstad2013-03-20 20:49:19
Cool site! Very nice work. I would totally order a print of this, if you included a magnifying glass!

Max2012-11-29 22:17:47
Hi, Nice work! I have a question/suggestion with regards to the radial stretch+rotation that you made of your infinitely retouched Print Gallery: if you, in addition, simultaneously made a circular translation of the right radius (in the same direction of the rotation) of the entire image (perhaps with some tailored adjustment of the phase velocity along the way), the ensuing spiral effect might give more of the feeling of entering the painting spatially. Would love to see it.
