Section 5 – Geometric paradoxes

Mano con Esfera (Escher)

 

Convexo y cóncavo (1955)

Litografía, 27,5x33,5 cm

This section focuses on two scientific domains that are of crucial importance to Escher’s art: mathematics and geometry. Between Escher and the mathematicians of his day ran a thin yet crucial line; the attraction between them, however, was a mutual and fruitful one. The Dutch genius alone was capable of turning his fantasies into images and this captured scientists’ attention, leading to an exchange with the world of science which continued even beyond the artist’s death.
