Description of the painting by Maurits Escher Relativity

Escher in this canvas, skillfully uses a technique called tessellation. Thanks to this technique, the master very skillfully divides one plane into several parts. Thus, he manages to cover the entire canvas with planes that do not intersect or overlap one another. Everything was done perfectly, thanks to the fact that the artist studied mathematical techniques devoted to symmetries, and on the basis of this, geometric figures were created, which were some living beings.

These graphic works surprised with their unusual shapes and intricacies of various geometric shapes. We can observe some paradoxes when architectural structures are depicted in three-dimensional space.

At first glance, the viewer can see that all the figures are ideally combined with each other, but this is only at first glance, if you take a closer look, then at some points of contact you can see conflicting connections.

In general, the picture is conceived by the artist in order to show a certain world that can exist in opposition to all the known laws of physics and gravity. Thanks to such a subtle sense of this issue and the interaction of space, the artist was able to masterfully perform this composition, which later made him a world-famous and generally recognized master.

Some viewers watching this picture for a long time can be a bit tired, this is not surprising, since even the most famous critics said that all the works of the master are too intellectual, and the ordinary viewer will be tired in comprehending any canvas of the artist. Despite this, paintings are very popular in the modern world.
