The Genius of M. C. Escher: Another World, 1947 wood engraving

The interior of a cube-shaped building. Openings in the five visible walls give views of three different landscapes. Through the topmost pair, one looks down, almost vertically, on the ground; the middle two are at eye-level and show the horizon, while through the bottom pair one looks straight up to the stars.

The Genius of M. C. Escher: Eye, 1946, mezzotint, seventh and final state, 5 1/2" x 7 3/4"

Although the mezzotint technique was new to him, he became fascinated because of the possibility it afforded of obtaining extremely subtle gradations of light and dark. This is a study of reflection as much as Escher's other prints on spherical reflection. Escher created this mezzotint using his own eye. He stated "It was necessary and logical to portray somebody in the pupil, an observer, reflected in the convex mirror of the eye. I chose the features of Good Man Bones with whom we are all confronted, whether we like it or not."

Sir Anthony van Dyck died on this day in 1641. Van Dyck was a Flemish Baroque artist who became the leading court painter in England, after enjoying great success in Italy and Flanders. He is most famous for his portraits of Charles I of England and his family and court, painted with a relaxed elegance that was to be the dominant influence on English portrait-painting for the next 150 years. He also painted biblical and mythological subjects, displayed outstanding facility as a draughtsman, and was an important innovator in watercolor and etching. The Van Dyke beard, which became popular in America in the 19th century was named for him as he painted men with short, pointed beards then in fashion. ... See MoreSee Less
