Wood engraving of the pessimist who shows up in two other works! This tessellation is the only time Escher created a print in which in one print it tessellates with itself and in another print it tessellates with a second person (In Encounter this pessimist tessellates with an optimist).  

 

This small format print is exceedingly rare.  Please inquire for price.
