Rippled Surface, 1950

woodcut

10 1/4 ny 12 5/8 inches

  1. B.367


    Rippled Surface is one of Escher’s three key water reflection prints.  The other two being Puddle and Three Worlds. 


    In this case, Escher combined printing techniques.  The water is actually a linocut, whereas the trees are a wood cut.  A linoleum block is easeir to cut than a wood block.  Whereas a wood block allows for greater detail.  


In Escher’s words:

    “To me the moon is a symbol of apathy, the lack of wonderment, which is the lot of most people. Who feels a sense of wonder any more, when they see her hanging there in the heavens . . . Leonardo da Vinci wrote of the moon, ‘La luna grave e densa, come sta, la luna [The moon has weight and gravity. How does the moon stay up (in the heavens)?]’ With these words Leonardo gives accurate expression to the breathless wonder that takes hold of us when we gaze at that object, that enormous, compact sphere floating along up there.”


    This woodcut is in excellent condition.  It is pencil signed and annotated by Escher.   Please email or call with any questions.
