Birthday and Father’s day

Today is Eschers birthday and it’s Father’s Day too! That’s why we are highlighting this special photo, in which father Maurits is posing with his family in front of their home in Ukkel, Belgium, in the fall of 1938. It’s also a rare photo, as Escher usually holds the camera himself. Escher is flanked by his sons George Arnold (center, born 23 July 1926) and Arthur Eduard (left, born 8 December 1928). Rather than looking into the camera, Jan Christoffel, born 6 March 1938, is more focused on his brother George.
