ARTISTIC CONUNDRUM: The 1949 painting entitled Loch Ness Monster and Black

ARTISTIC CONUNDRUM: The 1949 painting entitled Loch Ness Monster and Black

Our Loch Ness Monster is famed the world over, and pops up in very strange
circumstances from time to time.

Now she has surfaced at the centre of an art mystery in Italy.

This centres around a charcoal drawing dating from 1949, which is described as
Loch Ness Monster and Black Man without a Face, and which could possibly have
been drawn by famous Dutch artist, MC Escher.

This story of the mystery painting starts in 2005 in Volturara, a small
village in the Italian province of Avellino, where traffic police officer
Raffaele De Feo lives.

When clearing out his family?s attic, he found what he called ?the strange
picture?.

Initially he did not take any notice of it, but later, in removing the frame,
he sees an inscription on the back of the picture, signed by MC Escher, which
reads: ?With all my heart to a friendly remembrance.?

Now some Italians are urging art experts to authenticate the work as being
done by Maurits Cornelis Escher, nicknamed ?Mauk", and contacted the Press and
Journal to spread the world that Nessie ?lives? in Italy.

Escher (1898-1972) was hailed by many as one of the world's most famous
graphic artists. His art is enjoyed by millions of people all over the world,
as can be seen on the many web sites on the internet. And for several years he
lived and travelled in Italy.

He is most famous for his so-called impossible structures, such as Ascending
and Descending, Relativity, his Transformation Prints, such as Metamorphosis I,
Metamorphosis II and Metamorphosis III, Sky & Water I or Reptiles.
