Images by artist Maurits C. Escher (1898-1972) fascinate audiences with their imaginative design, consummate draftsmanship, and dreamy visions. Initially inspired by nature, Escher’s work later became submerged in what he referred to as “mental imagery,” a host of subjects influenced by Moorish architecture, mathematical equations, alchemy, and the concept of metamorphosis.
This is the largest private traveling Escher exhibition in the world, including woodcuts, lithographs, drawings, and all eight mezzotints from his career. You will see his best-known prints as well as lesser-known works, spanning his entire career from his earliest print to his final masterpiece. You’ll also get a glimpse into the artist’s process with a woodblock study and lithographic stone. Collection of Paul and Anna Belinda Firos, Athens, Greece.
