Pencil Art Jigsaw puzzles by Escher! 1000 Pieces! Finished size 20 X 25". The Dutch Artist M. C. Escher (1898 - 1972) is widely acknowledged as on of the greatest graphic artists of our century! This is just one of the outstanding collection of jigsaw puzzles and are from his best engravings! They have been reproduced with great accuracy and precisely to scale so the proportions of the originals remain undisturbed. Made in Holland.
While most two-dimensional artists use relative proportions to create an illusion of depth, Escher here and elsewhere uses conflicting proportions to create a visual paradox. The waterfall has the structure of a Penrose triangle, an impossible object designed by Lionel Penrose and his son Roger Penrose, and (independently) by Oscar Reutersvard.
