Maurits Cornelis Escher

Maurits Cornelis Escher,
artist or mathematician?
Methinks he's more like a torturer,
sending faceless men on a fruitless mission!



NOTE: He's a sketcher who drew the famous work, Relativity (as well as many others).

    Referring to "Relativity," I presume? I love Escher! Great job on this one :)

    Good point, Rick! However one thing that's nice about his works is that the majority of them (including Relativity) are all black and white, because they are pencil drawings.
