Very original approach and style. Great for cd artwork too. http://artists.iuma.com/IUMA/Bands/PJHinman/

I like the droste effect... please do more trippy animations... great when on mushrooms, acid also tends to make them enjoyable - yay...

The original Droste design was made by Jan Misset. He was inspired by existing design, but Droste was his. Who contradicts this? (See message George Moorman, below.)

Escher is amazing. His work will never be outdated. The animations on this site are awe-inspiring. Good job!

wicked pictures fo Escher

Greg Yeardly2004-10-01 17:54:25
I've seen some interesting floor patterns that incorporate Escher's work. gyeardly@iblueit.com

Peter de Wijs2004-09-30 14:00:15
Lovely animations! Always wanted to make such a thing myself but i've got too many other things to do. I'm sure there are many other pictures that can be transformed to an animation. See you!

As an artist, I greatly enjoyed this Escher show. As a translator, I enjoyed translating the Dutch version of a book about Escher by Harrie Welles into the English language. The title of this book was: 'Playing with Continued Fractions in Escher's Garden'. I wonder if you know of the existence of this book. The book was published by Harrie Welles himself and only distributed to friends and colleagues but I think it deserves more official attention. Ellen Goldman

This art gets better with age. Imitators can try to improve the technique but won't improve on the underlying concept.

Scott2004-09-14 16:16:16
Thank you for the great work on this site. I found your site while investigating Escher's work. I am an animator looking to create an Escher-esk animation inspired by his tesselations. I am finding it difficult without a solid understanding of the math behind it. I like the concept behind the "loop", creating the Droste effect.

Pablo2004-09-14 12:24:09
Everytime i see this site!!! i feel the presure in my chest!

Samie2004-09-12 13:19:19
i love your paint

robin morris2004-09-11 05:56:01
I believe this was like most of mce's later work a woodblock print...I imagine he might have been able to work out the center but rather than have it get muddled Aas it gets smaller he quit at a certain scale. Thanks for this very fascinating site.

Verry good site! The Best!

madrabbi2004-09-09 13:30:15
I have very much enjoyed this excellent site. I greatly appreciate the accessible presentation of your work, as I am no mathematician myself! The overall style of your work is excellent and takes nothing away from the genius of the artist, but simply embellishes one's understanding of his unique talent. I hope you bring the wonder of Escher to many more people. Congratulations.

our project has been finished, just take a look at our article, sorry but it's in Dutch. http://fcc.feo.hvu.nl/~wiskunde/scripties_studenten Sorry in Dutch now, je moet dus de scriptie hebben van Yuri en Perry, hij is redelijk groot 1,2 mb, kan even duren dat je hem hebt gedownload, en het kan gebeuren dat sommige plaatjes niet goed overkomen, even afsluiten en opnieuw openen. Nog even ons doel van deze verdieping: "het in redelijk begrijpbare taal zetten van hoe deze invulling in elkaar zit." laat hier of via de mail weten wat je ervan vind!

excellent site

Paolo Salvucci2004-08-09 23:57:08
Really interserting topic. Really good presentation. Thanks

Ms. Terry Hansen2004-08-07 16:57:08
Fascinating. I have always liked Escher. I enjoy his work because it hits me on many levels. I never realized that mathematics and computers could enhance his work by showing how difficult it was. He is a superb artist.

Baher Abdelhadi2004-08-02 08:23:31
An excellent work. I'd like to all Echer's works, would you please send me the link? Thanks a lot. Baher

Maria Giovanna2004-08-01 21:47:21
Che dire, siete SPLENDIDI. Grazie a voi, ho conosciuto l'effetto Droste. Vi ho messo tra i miei preferiti :-) Braaaaviiii, continuer a seguirvi con piacere e curiosit. ciao ciao

Ernst Gollan2004-08-01 17:27:44
I like the Site..Very good. My Grandfather Was Dutch and told me of this Artwork and showed me some of Escher when I was small. Thanks for the site!

Hi Drost, Great site, and a load of very varied responses to MC. He was 'the man' as far as I was concerned. I have a fine art degree in painting and sometimes teach as well as work as a painter. I often use MC's work as an example for my students as a drawing resourse. As much as they love his work.... it is not always immediately understood by everyone except by means of mathamatical precission, so I do understand the confusion. Artists like to rely on their instincts.... I think that MC did too but on a more emotional level, and there, for me at least, lies the heart and soul of his originallity and vision.

i need a draw by escher,thanks

Andrew Morley2004-07-18 18:47:50
I recently appealed (on an Ebay page advertising a tin for sale), for help with a word to define 'a picture replicating itself within itself'. The tin I had for sale was a Huntley & Palmer's Cocktail assortment, the image on the lid of which has this replicating in reducing stages effect. I noted that the Droste Cocoa tin has the same effect, as does the Royal Baking Powder tin and the more obscure 'After Dinner' cigarettes tin. Hannah Smael saw my appeal for information, and was kind ... read more

Wow, best vet man. Hoelang zou die Escher erover gedaan hebben om die print te maken in vergelijking tot de meesterprogrammeurs die het op de compu hebben nagebouwd?

Susan Hughes2004-07-14 04:52:29
I have been a huge fan of Escher ever since I laid eyes on his works. He has given me the courage to look at things from different angles. New and exciting ways. An artist and genius that has inspired me in many aspects of my life. I thank you for the ability to have experienced his work in many ways

Hello everybody, I would escher pics, could you me tosturen?

arthur e de groot2004-07-06 21:30:21
Het is wonderbaarlijk dat we ons blijven verbazen over het resultaat van de gedachten en openbaringen van Esher. De wiskundige uitleg en achtergronden van zijn kunst kunnen ons wel leren hoe iets is gemaakt, maar hoe het is bedacht blijft kunst! Dank voor het onderzoek. arthur.

fieke2004-07-04 11:43:42
HEy evorbody! I am from the Netherlands and I have for school a workpiece for mathematics. And they ask me: call all the platonic and Archimedean Solids, who are in the picture from Escher work the "stars". Can anybody help me please. And sorry if my englisch isn't very good. fieke.
