  1. The Art of M.C. Escher

  2. 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. Who was M.C. Escher?
