Wow, it was amazing the work you had done , WELL DONE!!! Escher is one of my favourite artists. Maths is all over his works, and it really reminds me of Leonardo Da Vinci!

A successful project. Nicely done.

Thank you so much for this information. This is truly fantastic. You make the effect understood so easilly. Wonderful animations and step by step.

It occurred to me that the video would also be interesting if viewed in reverse so that we would get the perspective of moving out from the print.

Fantastic site; very informative.It blow me away; I will visit many, many times.

Michael Karpman2007-06-22 04:28:16
Your accomplishment is every bit as amazing as Escher's. You have illustrated something profound, beyond just the art and mathematics of your creation. No matter how great a talent someone possesses their work can be improved upon. I encourage you to make available a large size print of your "improved" Print Gallery. When I say large, I mean large enough that at least two levels of recursion will be visible to the naked eye. If you decide to sell these prints please get in touch with me by email.

amazing stuff! what a fascinating mystery, and to unravel it like this is wild! good work!!

I have purchashed a 1943 Reptiles Lithograph and LOVE it!!! Thank You for having and sharing such talent.

About 15 years ago, while working on a Sun workstation, I was always wondering about the provenience of the 'escherknot' on the X11 background (the world wide web was in its infancy).

I am always inspired by his work...genuine unique creation

Wow, very interesting work, thank you very much, I will probably spend a couple of days looping all the video's thinking of what a genius Escher was and what a genius you are :D...... from Italy

Nice site, i am doing a presentation about m.c. escher and maybe this site can be useful. I totally don't get it but that doesn't matter.. tnx :-D

desenho feito por Escher é maravilhoso. Monica Brasil

have you considered a fractle distribution of the image or a vector graphic representation of your image? infinitely scalability can be achieved with this.

I was fascinated by your lecture downloaded for the internet. After visiting your web site I would like to know more about the mapping techniques used to generate the various images. I would also like to know more about the Droste effect used by other artists. Beautiful work!

wierd and wonderful world of mathematics. I enjoyed the concepts and will definitely look up this subject again. Boeing Technical Author.

i really like yo web site

just looking

In the non-rotating MPG-animation of the Print Gallery that demonstrates the Droste effect, I noticed something funny. On the left of the gallery, a print of Mobius-strip II is exhibited. Escher made Mobius-strip II in 1963. The Print Gallery was made in 1956. So the MPG-Print Gallery exhibits a print that does not exist.

I am thrilled at coming across this website of M.C. Escher's works. I have been inspired today to once again pick up a pencil and once again begin to draw. Thank you for the time and effort put into developing such an exhibition.

Jose Manuel2007-04-07 23:15:59
MCEscher´s pictures are actually in an exhibition in Madrid (Spain). It is so great, and the one that thrilled me was this great \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Galería de Grabados\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" (in Spanish). If you can, come to visit it. Simply irresitible!!!

I attended the lecture at Princeton on April 3, 2007. It was fabulous. I am a high school math teacher and I have to figure out a way to share this with my geometry classes. Wow! Thank you so much for lecture and the amazing website.

Lynn2007-04-04 16:33:06
The lecture at Princeton was fabulously entertaining and breathtaking. This site is awesome and will be visited often.

N2007-04-04 12:42:32
Hey, where's the Droste box animation?

Clinton R. LeFort2007-03-31 18:47:23
Bravo! I heard about your work thru the Princeton Lecture Series, kindness of Nathan Savir of the Princeton Math Club.Best to you and your fellow Mathematicians,ArtisticRenderers. Clinton R. LeFort

Mc Escher is awesome and radical i love his drawings and hes a hottie

You need better skillz

A beautifull explanation of a marvelous picture.

Thank you

This charming analysis enhances the brilliance of Escher.

Hi all! Very nice site!

Henk Hooijschuur2007-03-10 13:08:34
Na een prachtige lezing met uitstekend beeldmateriaal door Bart de Smit op de Moderne Wiskunde Dag d.d. 8 maart 2007 geeft deze site een prima mogelijkheid ook collega\\\'s van de wiskunde- én TeHaTex-sectie mee te laten genieten.

Andre Meiresonne2007-03-08 00:20:55
this animation is really great! THNX!!! hypnotizing!

I had to do a paper in my mate class about MC Escher. I had no idea who he was or why we were looking at him in math class. But I found that he was a great man. My favorite picture that he did was the Mezzotint. I love the skull in the eye. To me it says to look death in the eye. I maybe compleatly wrong but this is coming from a 16 year old student. I have found that I like a lot of his work and i had to thank my math teacher for making us do this paper. Melissa

Theoni2007-03-04 20:49:17
This is exciting and fascinating work whether seem by the eyes of an mathematician or an artist. Thank you for an excellent and thorough explanation, and topped off with superb animation.

Stefano2007-03-01 16:37:26

I visit in Madrid, yesterdey, the great exposition about this artist. I think it is marvellous¡¡ Pensaba que era un autor minoritario, pero me encontré con una cola de casi una hora.Mereció la pena. Es fantastica.
