Who's that artist that paints those optical illusion pictures? I think he was German and his name begins with 'E'. The picture I remember is of the staircase never-ending. You thing you see the bottom but it's the beginning again.
M C Escher http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M._C._Escher
Walter Ehrenstein ?
Thanks Yvie and Dove, that's the chap
wasn't Escher born in the Netherlands?
Yes Escher was Dutch
Walter Ehrenstein was a psychologist - he's best known for studying how optical illusions work
Mark, are you thinking of making a staircase like that?
"Escher, Escher, all fall down!" [drat those tricky staircases!].
David, that reminds me of...'I'll have a baroque cake and a cup of rococco please'
