World of M. C. Escher

I spent an enjoyable afternoon with two friends at the Takamatsu Art Museum, seeing the World of M. C. Escher exhibit, then talking over dessert and coffee. 



From the Museum's website:
Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972) was a genius printmaker produced by 20th Century Netherlands, and is a familiar figure even in Japan as an artist who worked in “trompe-l’oeil” (trick pictures). Based on the theme of an abstract concept of “changes in appearance, circulation, infinity, and rivalry between two dimensions and three dimensions”, Escher left behind a great number of works with a unique style of painting, and even now he is highly regarded as a leading Dutch artist.
