  • About the Product
  • About the Artist
  • Customer Reviews
The visual irony M.C. Escher (1898 – 1972) used in his signature optical illusions also served him in “Skull with Cigarette,” his mockery of smoking. A Dutch artist, who had failed several high school subjects, disliked math but intuitively understood complex mathematical principles and incorporated them into his work. Scientists and mathematicians considered his impossible buildings, spatial illusions and geometric patterns to be mathematically perfect.
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.

Comments:

I placed it next to Van Gogh's skull with cigarette. They make a great pair, but the Escher print is a bit smaller, so they don't match exactly.
