A Late Surrealist

The exhibition shows the mysterious World of Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898–1972), the Dutch artist and his special printings and drawings. More than 110 works are displayed, woodcuts, lithographical works, drawings. Trained as an architect, he broke off this study and continued as graphical designer with a focus on dimensional experiments based on geometrical ornaments, mathematics and optical illusions. His art can be regarded as surrealistic, because of the compositions of contradictory objects and locations, the dissolution of the logic order, the use of metamorphoses and the connection between dream and ratio.
