The crucial turning point in Maurits Cornelis Escher’s artistic development was his second visit to the Alhambra and Cordoba in 1936. While the artist had already developed a considerable interest in tessellation through his Art Nouveau training, this second visit to the Alhambra led him to embark on a meticulous study of the patterns used to decorate the extraordinary Moorish palace. The pièce de résistance of this section is the complete suite of 6 prints from Regular Division of the Plane a booklet commissioned to MC Escher in 1957 by the publishers
De Roose Foundation.
