M. C. Escher

M. C. Escher was a Dutch graphic artist, he was well-known for his mathematical approach to art. This piece conveys an impossible situation which water appears to be travelling uphill. The calculated 90 degrees corners drawn allows this piece to appear three dimensional and gives the illusion that this situation could be possible. However, on closer examination you see that it cannot happen. This piece was influential as it allowed other artists to create pieces that were not physically possible. I feel that this piece was successful in engaging with the audience
