Summary In 1956, Dutch artist Maurits C. Escher challenged the laws of perspective with Print Gallery and found himself trapped behind an impossible barrier ... This uncompleted masterpiece quickly became the most puzzling enigma of Modern Art, for both artists and scientist. Half a century later, mathematician Hendrik Lenstra took everyone by surprise by drawing a fantastic bridge between the intuition of the artist and his own, finally shattering the Infinity Barrier!
