There's a hilarious Escher cartoon in a recent New Yorker: link to Conde Nast store

You're right. There were some very good examples in his book of Escher, one of my favorites. The other I should have made reference to is Magrite. A professor of physics at Caltech once commented upon seeing one of my efforts at painting (he was an amateur painter too)  that it was a combination of Magrite's out-of-the-world but in the world perspective and the style of Naif painter Grandma Moses: I was never sure whether he was complimenting me or not.

Hmm, surely I can't be the only who thinks one doesn't have to be up very high to discern the curvature of Earth - say, overlooking the ocean (or in my case Lake Ontario)?
