Exhibition

 

From 2 February to 25 June Madrid will host an Escher retrospective, one of the exhibitions most widely acclaimed by international audiences with more than 700,000 visitors to date. On display at the Gaviria Palace, the show features 200 works by the visionary Dutch artist whose creations not only left their mark on the minds of scientists and imaginations of designers but also had a major impact on the art world.

Hand with Reflecting Sphere, Relativity (or House of Stairs), and Belvedere are some of the masterpieces by this genius of surrealism included in the exhibition. The selected works offer visitors an insight into the trajectory of Maurits Cornelis Escher (The Netherlands, 1898-1972), an engraver, intellectual and mathematician whose oeuvre has marked the collective culture for decades. In addition to the backdrop shown, the exhibition includes scientific experiments, play areas and educational resources that will help visitors of all ages to understand the impossible perspectives, disquieting images and seemingly irreconcilable universes which Escher combined to create a unique artistic dimension.

Produced and organized by Arthemisia in association with the M. C.  Escher Foundation and curated by Mark Veldhuysen, curator of the M. C. Escher Foundation, and Federico Giudiceandrea, the great Italian collector, the show has also provided the pretext for the reopening of the Gaviria Palace, an architectural jewel of the city of Madrid which has been closed for years.

With more than 200 works , the exhibition is divided in 7 sections:
