Escher spent the early part of the summer of 1931 in Ravello and along the coast of Amalfi, Italy. With its dramatic mountains and ancient hill towns this was a particularly favorite region for Escher. Drawings from the trip, including this example, inspired 15 woodcuts, wood engravings, and lithographs.
