Transcript of M.C. Escher

M.C. Escher He lived from 1898-1972 He was born in Leeuwarden, Netherlands in 1898. He was very sick as a child and failed the second grade. At first, he took up architecture but soon switched over to drawing. He was fascinated with impossible shapes and used many in his works. He was a busy man and he moved several times in his life before settling down in Baarn, Netherlands. His favorite place in the world was Italy.
Many of his works were inspired by the Italian countryside. He died in an artist retirement home in 1972. During his lifetime, both World Wars were fought.
