After taking a week of architecture class at the Haarlem School For Architecture And Decorative Arts he switched to studying graphic art.
This decision was encouraged by the art teacher, Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita, after he had seen some of Escher's work.
In 1922 Escher left school and toured Italy, looking for inspirations for his work.
He loved Italy and went back each year for more than a decade.

He failed second grade and his high school exams.

Later in life Escher would become fascinated with applying mathematics to art. He published multiple books explaining how he used mathematical designs in his work.
