Despite the obvious differences between the work of Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher and that of Romanian draftsman S. Steinberg, with a closer look is possible to trace strong affinities between some of their works and many of the themes they handled, such as the drawing of metamorphoses, the figure-background relationship, and the intercourse between reality and representation space. In spite of a general mood difference between their respective graphic narrations, the work of the two authors appears to be based on the same kind of anxieties that have crossed the twentieth century, involving different fields of knowledge.
