Is there maths behind M.C. Escher's work? If so, what elements are there?
In this essay, before I start anything, I must first clarify that I deeply consider mathematics as a subject that has had a great influence on the artist and his masterpieces, therefore I already alarm you that throughout my essay I will talk about Escher's work and try to persuade you that there has been a considerable integration of the subject matter with his very artworks. In order to make you understand my objective, I have gathered some of his work, then selected a few, which I found had more mathematical elements, then with a decreased amount of drawings to work with, I would be able to study all components and show you that there has been a great influence of maths on him. I believe these images without the existence of any mathematical aspect would not be able to be fully accomplished.
Elements like: symmetry (reflection also included), pattern/tessellation (repetition), transformation, crystallography, "impossible shapes", proportion and the 'Fibonacci Sequence' or the 'Golden Ratio'. Are suggested to be present in M.C. Escher's artworks, these I believe have been responsible to create the effect
