Starry night is believed to be the view from his bedroom window. M. C. Escher printed Relativity in 1953. This print was a lithograph. One of the cool traits about this print was its unique 3-dimensional style. This print depicts a world where the laws of gravity do not apply. The structure has seven stairways, and all of the stairways can be used by people who belong in different gravity sources. People depicted as going up the stairs upside-down, are actually going down the stairs normally in their gravity source. Escher shows an unrealistic world in this print, in the same way he is asking who controls this world. He printed this to seem like the human figures control what’s going on. The humans are going on with their…

    Two pieces of art that I chose to compare and contrast would be, “Starry Night”, by Vincent Van Gogh and, “Road to Happiness”, by Victor Figol.

    The use of line is used widely through one of his most famous pieces, The Starry Night. Referred to as “the visible path of a moving point (Understanding Visual Artforms in Our World, Anderson and Carson, 2014, pg.30)”, line defines every visible object in the night depicted in the painting. In deep examination, I notice that the sky is completely composed of wavy lines. As said in the text, lines are sometimes used to bring out a certain emotion. The swirls and waves of the light around the…
