Chaos is present everywhere

The linked article, written at the occasion of the current Escher exhibition "Chaos is present everywhere", gives some rare insights into the artist who created some of the most iconic images of the 20th century. One thing that was completely new to me was that the Rolling Stones wanted to use one of his pictures as an album cover, Escher turned them down. He’d never heard of the Stones. An interesting read, recommended. [Image photographer: Hans Peters (ANEFO) - Ga het na (Nationaal Archief NL), CC BY-SA 3.0
