M.C. Escher: portrait and abstract elements from his work

Maurits Cornelis Escher (June 17, 1898 March 27, 1972), usually referred to as M. C. Escher, was a Dutch graphic artist. He is known for his often mathematically inspired woodcuts, lithographs and mezzotints. These feature impossible constructions, explorations of infinity, architecture and tessellations.
