MC Escher Woodcuts and Wood Engravings

      Escher mostly abandoned creating landscapes by the 1940’s.  Instead he found geometry, specifically the platonic solids, and the “Division of the Plane.”  Many of the tessellations he created in his notebook of watercolors also became woodcuts.  There are a number of small format woodcuts that were used as invitations and cards.  Also note “Relativity”, the only major print to be created in both woodcut and lithograph format.

      The following pages contain Escher’s woodcuts and wood engravings in chronological order.  Click on anything you are interested in for more information and larger pictures.  Many pieces are for sale. Please inquire as inventory changes quickly.
