M.C. Escher

The work of Maurits Cornelis Escher (Netherlands, 1898-1972) lies at the crossroads of three traditionally unrelated disciplines. As a result, this singular graphic artist's name is cited as often in basic math and psychology textbooks as in introductions to art history. This lesson plan introduces some of his preferred themes through ten prints from the collection of the National Gallery of Canada.
