MC Escher

1898-1972

Dutch printmaker. With outstanding descriptive power and printmaking skills, he is also known as a "fantastic printmaker" and a "visual magician." He is famous for his later deception paintings and the style of repeating the same motif, but his works such as prints depicting landscapes and illustrations of books are also spectacular, and many exhibitions are held as popular artists in Japan.
