This first section highlights Escher’s rapport with Art Nouveau. The link between the future engraver – a student at the time – and this important international current was his teacher, Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita. The influence from Art Nouveau is one of the distinguishing features of Escher’s early style and it also sparked his future interest in tessellation or the regular division of the plane.

Then his close relationship with Italy is dealt with in depth, a country where Escher spent several periods of his life between 1921 and 1935.
