Bond of Union
Bond of Union (1956) by M.C. Escher.
Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972), better known by his initials as M.C. Escher, is one of the greatest graphic artists of the 20th century.
Perhaps the best definition that has been given of him is that he is “one of the most recognizable and admired by the great public”.
This goes to say that many people admire and find their works curious, intriguing and beautiful, although at first they do not know very well who they are or really know the author or the era in which they were created.
His most popular works, impossible figures, reticulated backgrounds with different patterns and imaginary worlds have been reproduced ad nauseam on covers of books, magazines, advertising campaigns and in all kinds of formats.
Escher is, in some way, one of the most referenced artists in the “popular culture” of the twentieth century.
