Who was m c escher l.jpg

Maurits Cornelis Escher (M.C. Escher) was born in 1898 in the Netherlands.

In art school, he learned how to make woodcuts. Woodcuts are pieces of wood that have a picture cut into them. Ink is spread over the cut wood. Then paper is pressed against it. When the paper is pulled off of the wood, there is a picture on it.

Escher is most famous for his woodcuts of impossible shapes and tessellations. A tessellation is a picture that fits into itself like a puzzle piece.

Escher made hundreds of pictures, both woodcuts and drawings.

M.C. Escher died in 1972.
