The Art of M.C. Escher (d. 1972) and Islamic Geometric Patterns
A workshop on the life, inspiration and works of M.C. Escher (died 1972), a famous Dutch artist whose works on so called “regular divisions of the plane” were inspired by the beautiful Arabic geometric patterns on the walls of the Moorish Alhambra palace in Granada, Spain. During this workshop, participants learn the mathematical techniques that Escher used to make his works based on regular division of the plane such that the participants will be able to make their own Escher like drawings or will be able to recognize the mathematical techniques used in an existing work in Escher style.
