#FOWC — Mirror Image

CD6D6261-3979-4AA1-921A-8159D948E531The image above, Hand with Reflecting Sphere, also known as Self-Portrait in Spherical Mirror, is a lithograph print by Dutch artist M.C. Escher. First printed in January 1935, the piece depicts the artist’s hand holding a reflective sphere. In the reflection, most of the room around Escher can be seen.

I have always been a huge fan of M.C. Escher’s work. I have several coffee table books of his drawings in my home as well as a handful of his prints hanging on my walls.

Here are just a few of my favorite Escher works. Look at them closely.

    Escher’s great. At one point I had some of his prints. They got lost in the shuffle over the past 20 or so years

    Love Escher’s work… my sister had one of his prints in her room growing up – I’d stare at it as long as I could before she kicked me out of her room.
