Great work, inspiring spirals!

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 Ruigrok2016-08-14 00:38:58
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.

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 15:20:49
Great work guys... :D Much appreciated.

Wei-Tse Lin2015-01-08 15:52:42
Very nice website! Thanks very much.

Claire Denise Garrard2014-12-26 05:11:48
Fascinating. Thanks so much for this site.

Jurrien & Elza2014-12-11 14:47:44
hey, we gaan sws het eschermuseum bezoeken na het bekijken van dit meesterwerk. groetjes Elza & Jurrien

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

james2014-05-25 23:00:57
Timeless, no from before time. OK a dimension in addition to all others including time.

Philip Allin2014-02-21 05:22:07
Thanks for this site. I have completed 20 woodcarvings based on Escher designs.

Livio Scalmati2014-02-09 23:27:12
Very interesting. I visited toady 9 Feb 2014 the Reggio Emila Escher show collection in the Museum.

Wouter van Nifterick2013-12-16 05:38:12
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)

Daniel Maier2013-11-21 23:04:54
Great, thank you !

Klas Krantz2013-10-06 23:33:07
Great!

rjanwender2013-07-05 10:16:58
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

art+math=inspiration

Jagoda Cristina2013-05-09 21:36:32
Excelente!! Viva Escher!!

Pedro Jose Torres2013-04-26 17:49:03
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.

jozef tari2013-04-20 10:53:06
love escher

Hi, I implemented a webgl shader (running on chrome) showing the transformation of Escher on a 3D-city: https://www.shadertoy.com/view/Mdf3zM

I was totally caught by your five steps! tenboom.org

Andrew Hjermstad2013-03-20 21:49:19
Cool site! Very nice work. I would totally order a print of this, if you included a magnifying glass!

Max2012-11-29 23:17:47
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.

Frances de Vries2012-10-17 01:50:31
Captivating artistry! Intriguing engineering feats with an artist flair. I have just discovered you thru my 20 year old daughter Anna! Do you have a biography in print?

Jackie Aldridge2012-10-16 20:17:58
Thanks for the interesting site. jackie

Jose Luis2012-09-15 23:52:04
Thanks for the site. It is always nice to revisit M.C.Escher, and specially the mathematics associated with his work.

knezmej2012-08-06 13:12:54
Thank You

Joe Corneli2012-07-24 06:32:44
Inspiring even many years after the fact - maybe my favorite Esher drawing.

Irene Thompson2012-07-19 21:09:37
Comin' atcha from California. Loved your site.

bobo2012-07-08 22:39:13
wish that this was easier to grasp..

Lloyd Smith2012-06-07 16:56:13
Wonderful insights!

Luna2012-04-22 02:55:12
This is great information for my research paper, thank you so much!

Chris Strunz2012-03-06 08:55:57
Wow. His art is amazing. It's so complex.

Jessica Rojo2012-02-22 17:38:05
Very nice!

Sophie2012-02-15 17:05:47
Really great site and plenty of information, I could watch Escher artworks for hours and read about his way to distord images for hours too. Thanks for your work here :)

John Walker2012-01-03 07:34:34
Escher has always been my favorite artist. His prospective and logic are fascinating. He has influenced my art, photography, and has allowed me to 'see' beyond what is in front of me.

Richard Juday, PhD2011-12-11 06:21:49
Very nifty mathematical explanation of what Escher was doing almost solely intuitively. What a pleasure to run across this site! I have been doing some related work, in which source images are filtered random fields and rendered in color. I have some new things to try now!

Sebastián Osorio2011-11-19 16:34:47
Great exposition @Universidad de los Andes. I have a new perspective of Escher's Work. Thanks a lot.

Holden Madick2011-11-16 01:03:30
Great website! Loved the fascinating patterns displayed! Helped me greatly on my art history report.
