Nicely unravelled!

Trop fort, trop génial, je passerai des jours entier à regarder les dessin de ce "Maitre"

Fuck me! Sorry if this too much, but the man was a genius. I mean that in the old sense of the word - 'spiritual protector'

There is a dearth of intelligence like yours in my life. So thank you. 1st saw this in Athens. Om Ah Hum Vajra Guru Padma Siddhi Hum

I have always admired Escher's work, though i may not have known his name until recently. I saw this website and i was astonished at those animations. It must have been very time consuming and i figure it had to be precise. Well done to the person(s) resbonsible for that. It blew my mind. Jayson 19 uk

how many pictures in total did mc escher do

Éric2005-11-13 19:12:18
I found this site from examining how the famous "zoom-quilt" flash animation was made. Seems like those guys put Escher's "looping images" concept in practice: a series of images, each one being the center part of the previous one scaled up to size. Fascinating stuff.

Claire Kaye2005-11-11 20:45:22
Absolutely fascinating. Many thanks to the hole-filling animators! And what a genius that man was, both artistically and mathematically. I'd much rather have an Escher than half a pickled shark any day... And to those people who feel like leaving rude or sarcastic messages on this site: don't bother 'cos the rest of us who do appreciate the effort the animators have put in really don't want to read your unpleasant comments. Perhaps you have no sense of wonder... Like the Wise ... read more

Hey there, we love Escher!...not, what geeks would come on this website!

Mike2005-11-04 02:25:29
Absolutely amazing. I have the book The Graphic Work Of M. C. Escher. I have admired his work since I was at art school in the 60s. Watching the animations convinced me that Escher was able to draw in a fractal mode.

Interesting information you have, but more updates will be super. cheers.

Vladan Zdravkovic2005-11-03 02:55:28
hello...would You be so kind and send me some information how to find images from the "Leiden Sketchbook : towns along road from Vienna to Constantinople (1577-1585)"? I am searching for the representation of the Petrovaradin. Compliments to your site!

Infinitely intriguing! Thank you so very much! It's the mystery unraveling into further mystery. Excellent!!!

Joanne T. Vannah2005-10-25 00:36:54
Interesting analysis/explanation and incredible visuals of some of Escher's work. Has there been much fractal analysis on the scaling principles he had employed?

Gemma McCoyd2005-10-20 20:42:51
Hi, Love the website in particular the Escher loops. Just wondering if you have read the book 'GODEL, ESCHER, BACH: an Eternal Golden Braid' its all about the strange loops that arise in Escher and the works of others. If you have any other information on how Escher did this painting or any of his others can you let me know. I'm actually studying this for a mathematics disertation! Thanks, Gemma

Lars Lund2005-10-19 12:12:42
Hi there I just stumbled over your amazing work, very stimulating and impressive. However, I find the combination of the four scales of the reconstructed Droste images a bit unsatisfactory, since it appears to me to be necesssary only due to the resolution problem. Escher, I suppose, did not use this transformation either. Have you considered to produce a vector version of the Droste image? This could be made to cover one full period, and thus make the transition phase unnecessary!

Na een bespreking op een bijbelstudiekursus in Ronneby, wilde ik graag een van Eschers tekeningen laten zien. Vriendelijke groeten. maaike

Thank you for sharing the results of your work. Can't say I understand the math, but you help me get a feel for the basic ideas. Mind-boggling results. (Think I'll lie down now until I get over feeling dizzy.) 8-)

I am highly impressed. Your work here is outstanding. I would enjoy seeing these techniques applied to other prints of Escher. This site is a fantastic teaching resource. GUY man mugu

Very nice site, but i only see a drawing of that museum-city... or something... why don't you guys show all other drawings Escher made??? there're thousands of them!! greetz, Suzanne P.S.: I'm very proud of Escher, becouse he's a Dutchman, and i am dutch too... so now holland is getting some attention finally :p
