BIOGRAPHY

Maurits Cornelis Escher

Maurits Cornelis Escher was born June 18, 1898 in Leeuwarden in the Netherlands. He died on March 27, 1972 in Laren the Netherlands at the age of 73. His nickname Mauk. He was the youngest son of George Arnold Escher and Sara Geirchman. He was great at drawing but had bad grades. He attended the school of Architecture and Decorative Arts in 1919. He studied under Samuel Jessurum De Mesquita. In 1922 he left school with a lot of experience in drawing and making wood cuts.

In 1924 he married Jetta Umiker. He had 3 sons. He met her in Italy. They lived in Rome until 1935. He moved to Switzerland and lived in Switzerland for 2 years. He was unhappy in Switzerland because he liked to paint the landscapes of Italy. In 1937 he moved to Ukkel, Belgium. In 1941 he moved to Baarn in the Netherlands. He lived there until 1970.

On April 30, 1955 he was awarded a Knighthood of the order of Orange Nassau. Most of Escher’s better known pictures were from after 1955. In 1962 he had surgery and he created no new images. Escher moved to Rosa Spier house in Lauren to mature.

His famous works were Relativity, Water, and the Hand with Reflecting Sphere. His ideas came from his mind and not from things you can look at. Escher’s work can be found at Escher’s museum in Hague, the Museum of Fine Arts in San Francisco, The National Gallery in Washington D.C. and many other museums throughout the world.

Reference


This picture is my favorite because if you look at the stairs you see people in every direction. There is no way to look at it with the steps going the right way, UP AND DOWN. The picture is full of value and space. Value makes the object look 3D but if you look close there is really no way this picture could actually be a real place and it just makes you have to really look close to understand it.
