The Other Side of Escher's Extraordinary "Puddle"
M. C. Escher printed virtually all of his woodcuts by hand in his home studio. Here he would experiment with different inks and papers, sometimes printing on exceptionally thin 'Japan' tissue. We recently acquired 'Puddle,' one of his most contemplative and complex creations, and as you can see in the picture above, the paper is so thin that the ink looks almost identical from the front of the sheet and the back! Escher found that printing on paper such as this gave tones and depth that could not be achieved any other way. To find a work like this in beautiful condition so many decades after it was created is a rare opportunity, and I invite you to see this print in person and consider hanging it on your own wall. 'Puddle' joins our collection of over fifty vintage works by Escher.
Our exclusive M. C. Escher catalog includes the first publication of a new essay "Escher and Philately" and our new print acquisitions. Contact our gallery for a hard-cover or pdf copy.
