ik heb een escher plaat gekocht bij antiek winkel. Het is de plaat zeester en schelpen symetry. het is geen poster van nu want de achterzijde van de plaat is ruw. misschien kan iemand mij vertellen wat dit is en uit welke tijd. Het escher museum kon mij niet helpen. vriendelijke groet roelien van duinen

wat een prachtige site en zoveel plaatjes en filmpjes echt beautiful.

I enjoyed your website! As a young boy I met Escher in Hilversum, Netherlands when he gave a lecture to the general populus. It is amazing that he was not more liked in his own country where he was just considered a graphic artist outside of the favored world of oil painters

I have never heard of Escher before, but when our maths proffessor taught about tessellations and gave us a project and gave the name Escher i was surprised at the beauty of the work of Escher. Long sentence right? Anyways, I think that Escher was a very talented person and when you look at the pictures, you see more than just he drew. You can see what he was thinking about. WOW!

yall crazy this aint cool

Well, I found this now, but the thought is really nice. It really is hard to see that there is a part missing to Print Gallery if you are not informed. Maybe Escher, after all, knew that this picture could have infinitely continued if not for the white hole. (Although you can infinitely zoom out...) I thank to the people who conducted this project.

Permítame felicitarlos por esta excelente página sobre Escher y el efecto de Droste. Creo que trabajos como los que hacen Uds. son muy importantes, no sólo porque permiten un acercamiento instuído a la obra de este gran artista, sino porque frente a la mirada miope y en veces ignorante de los crítcos que disfrazan su ignorancia tras el velo aparente de un lenguaje sin sentido, Uds. hacen un aporte interesante y fundamental para la exégesis e intelección de una obra que, por lo general, se quiere desconocer u ocultar. Felicitaciones, JUAN MANUEL JARAMILLO U. COLOMBIA

I was first attracted to Escher as a young teenager in the 1970s. I bought a book of his prints and would draw my own as an imitation of the Escher style. Recently, I was reading about the concept of tangled hierarchies in the book The Self-Aware Universe, which uses Escher prints to make its point. This rekindled my fascination in his work, which led me to a web search, which led me to your fascinating site. Thank you! David Rajter West Hollywood, CA

I have a lot of years studing the message MCE is trying to communicate us trough his prints,He himself saids that this are ideas related to the laws of nature that operate in the world around us.If somebody have the same line of thinking, I will apreciate to contact me. I think that this animation is the esence of the idea MCE is trying to comunicate us in his "Print Gallery". Excellent Work!

Great site, fascinating animations!! Thanks guys.

Anthony2004-10-24 12:39:26
I never realised this picture had a regular design behind it. You'd never suspect it at just a quick glance. How did you find out about the design and underlying grids used for this picture in the first place? Did you ever consider applying the same grid to a different picture? Well done!
