I have acquired a large amount of high quality Escher artworks, and related media.
A lot of his art would make good wallpapers, but they do require some edits because the aspect ratios aren't all that great.
I have already done a few. Check the edit folder.

I could get really excited about this. Please share original images in the highest quality you have. I prefer to do my own edits. If you wish to share your edits, please indicate them clearly. I've had a hard time finding quality Escher images, and so many are already altered ... and often poorly. Had a small collection years ago, now lost to HDD crash.

Monitoring this thread. Thank you one and all who can contribute.

OKay, screwed up. Did not want to post this one: >>7763831
It's a horribad enbiggenment one done an amateur who didn't know what he was doing with really bad software. Ignore it is my best advice. I keep it for reference and as an example of just how bad some enlargements can be.

Pic related is the one I intended to post.
>>
>>7763811
All the edits I do will be in the edits folder.
Not all of them are in super high quality, but just look for the ones that have been spit up into multiple photos and re-join them.
Such as
>Concentrische-schillen_cat387_1.jpg
>Concentrische-schillen_cat387_2.jpg
>Concentrische-schillen_cat387_3.jpg
>Concentrische-schillen_cat387_4.jpg
>>
>>7763837
Also a lot of the split up ones will be over 6MB, so if you want to post edits you will need to post to an external site.

Am I doing something wrong or did the link died? I don't have an account, so login isn't an option.

Nice! I put that up on a 2K 32" monitor and it's ... noice. Thank you!

One reason I'm bumpin' slowly with the stuff I grabbed from the MEGA is I'm looking through the images and pondering inspiration to cobble some edits from them. Giving myself time to sort of organically come up with something I want to invest the time in. Having this quality of source material presents some opportunities to mashup some Escher bits & pieces.

Hopefully I'll come up with something worthy. Eventually. Pretty intimidating and ballsy to think I can work with Escher himself as source material.

This was a fun, random find. I'm just trying to search a very hi res/quality Spirals image because it's been one of my favorites for years. And this pops up by accident.

>>
>>7809468
This is actually hard to find. There are tens of thousands of hits on image searches, but the edits and the quality are abominations. Then there are the hundred thousand poseurs who think they are artists and can do something similar .......

Anyway. This isn't the high quality I hoped to find, but maybe it's good enough? At least it looks like an unedited version of the original.

I've an old 4:3 19" monitor that I run in 1024x1280 portrait mode as a document reader. To preserve as much detail in this edit as I could, I didn't re-scale the final down to that resolution, I kept it at my working edit canvas 1780x2225. I figure that whoever can use this one should do their own resize, or just let their operating system handle it.

But, it does fit 3:4 aspect ratio portrait orientation perfectly. Rather than grayscale it, I just toned the red back a bit, played with the gamma & contrast slightly, and applied a light sharp filter. The existing jpeg artifacts got very slightly enhanced, but are generally unnoticeable, & I figured the end user can decide if they want to grayscale it themselves on their end.

Top & bottom border addition copy/pasta'd from >>7807762. Currently have both up, with a 32" 2560x1440 monitor & this in dual screen mode. It's pretty sweet.

Fairly quick & dirty edit for 2560x1440.

It works "mostly" for what I wanted. I tried to darken it up a bit for better blacks, and didn't grayscale it. Not certain if I'll try it again or not. If someone likes it enough & has some suggestions to improve it, I'll consider it if it's within my low skill set.

The working canvas for this was 4428x2751 before cropping & resizing. I didn't save that (and I don't think the filesize would be small enough for /wg/), but if I do it again I could not crop it to 16:9 if that's interesting/useful.
