M.C. Escher (1898-1972) is my favorite graphic artist. He lived and worked in Europe, mostly Switzerland and Italy, and is very well known for his of tesselations of natural figures, and for his depictions of unusual spaces and buildings.

Maurits Cornelis (M.C.) Escher was born on June 17, 1898, in the province of Friesland, Holland. He took up art in 1919, and became famous in the 1940s and 1950s for his novel tesselations of the plane and realistic depictions of impossible scenes and infinite vistas. He lived all of his life in Europe, and died in Hilversum, Holland in 1972.
