"Castrovola" MC Escher

This is MC Escher's "Castrovola." This is a lithograph painting which is a method for printing using a stone (lithographic limestone) or a metal plate with a completely smooth surface. Escher depicts a landscape from his early travels, a town known as Castrovola, Italy. Escher used a great deal of perspective in this lithograph. As you can see, the perspective creates real-life depth perception, allowing the viewer to really feel as if they are standing on the cliff viewing the rest of the landscape. I like this print because it relates to the perspective sketched that we are doing for class.
