The mathematical side of M.C. Escher. (English)
Notices Am. Math. Soc. 57, No. 6, 706-718 (2010).
Much has been written about the mathematical aspects of M.C. Escher’s work; see in particular {\it B. de Smit} and {\it H.W. Lenstra, jun.} [Notices Am. Math. Soc. 50, No. 4, 446‒457 (2003; Zbl 1159.01353)]. This well written article has something to offer even for those who are familiar with Escher’s mathematical side: details about Escher’s life, and his interactions with mathematicians such as Penrose and Coxeter.
