Up and down become one in M.C. Escher’s “High and Low,” which shows a single, incredible vantage point created from two angles of the same scene. A graphic artist, Escher (1898 – 1972) depicted astonishing symmetry by combining mathematical logic and visual improbability. He had no mathematical training, but instinctively used such advanced mathematical principles that mathematicians, scientists and crystallographers studied his work.
This art print displays sharp, vivid images with a high degree of color accuracy. A member of the versatile family of art prints, this high-quality reproduction represents the best of both worlds: quality and affordability. Art prints are created on paper similar to that of a postcard or greeting card using a digital or offset lithography press.
About the Artist
Creativity and logic converge in M.C. Escher’s mind-bending art of mathematical perfection. The Dutch Escher (1898-1972) is the world’s most famous graphic artist; his interlocking figures, shapes and mirror images presented in black and white enhance their implausible dimensions. As a student, Escher disliked math as much as he disliked flat shapes, thereby compelling him to create otherworldly optical illusions. Escher’s pop culture references appear in everything from The Simpsons to The Matrix to music and video games.
