Print, after the original Maurits Cornelius Escher print "The Fall of Man" (1927), signed and numbered in pencil at lower left 25/100, but not by the artist himself; this is a work after the artist, likely a posthumous printing of the 1970's or later. The sheet measures 11 3/8" by 9 1/4" (28.9 cm. by 23.5 cm.), versus the somewhat larger 14 3/4" by 10 7/8" (37.5 cm. by 27.6 cm.) measurements of the authentic print. I contacted the M.C. Escher official website and the detailed response left little doubt that this is not a genuine work, as the artist did not number his prints, the size is wrong, and certain details in the image are not totally correct, although there is actually a convincing plate mark. Therefore I am offering this for what it is, a decorative "homage" work after the famous graphic artist. Escher, one of the best known graphic artists in history, is of course known for his "impossible constructions", and "impossible spaces", where perspective and optical reality are suspended, the eye fooled. His genuine, pencil-signed woodcuts, linoleum cuts and wood engravings can bring many thousands of dollars at auction. This example is an interesting, decorative work and a real conversation piece. The piece is taped at top, and otherwise floats free against a board, in its simple framing.
