Tour: M.C. Escher – Life and Work

(https://www.nga.gov/features/slideshows/mc-escher-life-and-work.html)

Age Range: All (All grades; children with parental supervision)

 

The National Gallery of Art sponsors this site that offers a virtual tour of the artwork of M.C. Escher

If your students have studied math tessellations they may have been introduced to some of Escher’s work already – as he used patterns of interlocking forms and architectural mazes in his artwork. He also created unusual spatial effects by drawing a picture from different perspectives, for instance, looking up and down at the same time. Escher really contributed to the idea of metamorphosis drawing where one shape or object turns into something completely different. This tour offers examples of all of these aspects of his work and most kids will find the “morph” prints and drawings especially fascinating.

When you get to the site you can read the “Overview” for a biography and explanation of Escher’s work. Then click on the right arrow to view all of the many works in this virtual gallery. Each piece of art comes with a text explanation that helps the viewer to appreciate what they are looking at.
