Still-life and Street, March 1937

M.C. Escher
Dutch, 1898 - 1972
woodcut on laid japan paper

Gift of George Escher, Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia, 1983

Much like "Still Life with Mirror", this work is an impossible construction. Here, Escher combines several different perspectives into one view. The table with objects on it and the street that appears in the background actually form one continuous surface.
