Brandeis Women's Group - The History of Illusion and MC Escher

THE HISTORY OF ILLUSION IN ART & MC ESCHER

            The hand is quicker than the eye. Artists love to fool you with Illusion in many ways. Join us for a look at the tricks of the art world from Da Vinci and Anamorphic art to Op art and the Magic Eye. We will take a special look at the work of M.C. Escher, a Dutch graphic artist who was a master of the paradox, the tessellation, the dodecahedron, and grand manipulator of the basic laws of nature in illusion.
