"M.C. Escher was a Dutch graphic artist, most recognized for spatial illusions, impossible buildings, repeating geometric patterns (tessellations), and his incredible techniques in woodcutting and lithography." You know...the grid of birds merging into a sea of fish, the ant traversing the infinite loop? This page features many Escher works, and attempts to answer questions such as, "Was Escher a mathematician or an artist?" "Why is his popularity seemingly timeless?" In addition to artwork, there are Escher essays and quotes, as well as some attractive Escher merchandise.
