Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972), born in Leeuwarden, Netherlands, was a multidisciplinary artist whose legacy in the graphics and mathematical fine arts is known all around the world. Better known as M.C. Escher, his first pieces (1920-1925), where mostly wood and linoleum cuts about people and animals, meant to be posters or illustrations. Later on, in life, his portraits, constructions, and landscapes became even more realistic. Similar to Salvador Dali’s paintings, where the dreams and materialization of time come to life, Escher’s art opens the door to other dimensions and impossibilities, but with a hint of his personal style of engravings. Using repetition and rhythm of forms and objects, between 1940 and 1960 his work evolves into an exploration and observation of chaos and order in our world. The waterfall is one of Escher most famous pieces. It is a lithograph created in 1961, in which he got his inspiration from one of his travels in the south of Italy, many years before he started this piece. In a way, it is a work that puts together two periods in his life and two different inspirations: the Italian landscape and the optical illusions. In it there is a building that works impossibly, but, in a way, it makes sense. Playing with surrealism, mathematics, and physics, M. C. Escher Waterfalls leads us to new realities where the water rises and falls all over again.
