For this week’s Weekend Challenge, GC, at themainaisle.com, and SueW, at nansfarm.net, have given us the word “reflections.” As soon as I saw that word, I knew I would showcase a work by graphic artist, M.C. Escher.
I’ve been an Escher fan for many years. I have several coffee table books of his drawings in my home as well as a handful of his prints hanging on my walls. I thought this Escher graphic perfectly illustrates the notion of reflections.
The image, 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.
