Term 2: Week 9: Task 4

Hi Kids!  (Please note "Escher" is pronounced "Esh - sher")

This week you will be looking at one of Escher's most famous pieces, Relativity

Click here to view the original.

In your reading book write a paragraph (or two) about:
-have you seen this picture before? (If so, where?)
-your thoughts on this piece (Do you like it?  Why?)
-three reasons why you think it became so well known
-what do you think about the tribute pieces it inspired? (Did you like them?  Why?  Which is your favourite?  Why?)
-do you think M.C.Escher would have liked the modern pieces Relativity inspired?  Why?

If you have time spare, you are to sketch a (simple) picture of your own that is inspired by Escher's "Relativity".

Please see me if you would like to borrow one of my special M.C.Escher books, so you can look at Relativity on paper instead of the screen.

See you on Friday!  -Mr.E
