This book offers the opportunity to rediscover M.C. Escher (1898-1972), a giant of twentieth-century art.
A fabulously imaginative artist of unparalleled technical ability, he focused exclusively on graphic art, never affiliating to any group, and was a one-man art movement creating some of the most famous and popular images in modern art.
Published to accompany the M.C. Escher exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art Two and Dulwich Picture Gallery in 2015, the book illustrates the c.100 prints and drawings from the exhibition stretching across his whole career, and is drawn in its entirety from the collection of the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague, the Netherlands. Catalogue entries and short essays by the three authors accompany the illustrations.
