Recalling my days in film production, I was involved in a M.C. Escher filming project, using the cutting edge technology, 3D film production in early 1990. The production was of a short film, to be shown at the Escher Museums at Huis Ten Bowch Theme Park (Nagasaki). M.C. Escher, is an Artist well-known for mathematically inspired art form and the film production portrayed his few art forms in 3D which I recall was quite a challenging production.
Only quite recently did I obtain knowledge that Samuel Jesserun de Mesquita (1868-1944) was a great influencer to M. C. Escher, a Dutch born artist into a Portuguese Jewish family, who worked in the genres of painting, printmaking and decorative art. M. C. Escher’s early works strongly resembles Mesquita’s.
Some Mesquita’s works can be enjoyed at these link sites :
Being a great admirer of Escher, I visited Mesquita’s Exhibition, held running at the Tokyo Station Gallery (Address : 1-9-1 Marunouchi, Chiyoda City, Tokyo) until August 18th.
