The life of Escher

M.C. Escher was born on 17 June 1898, in Leeuwarden. He’s the third son from the second marriage of George Arnold Escher, to Sara Gleichman. Escher’s father already had two sons from a previous marriage. Maurits Cornelis was named after his mother’s uncle. When he was small, his official name was changed by the family to the familiar 'Maukie', later becoming 'Mauk', a name that would also be used by his friends.
