Escher at the Palacio de Gaviria

Maurits Cornelis Escher (1899-1972), master of Dutch Surrealism, is the name that will be drawing hundreds to Madrid this year. As an exhibition of over 200 of his greatest works will be opening on Calle Arenal. In the heart of Madrid.

The exposition will also be an excellent opportunity for Madrid’s architecture lovers to set foot inside the Palacio de Gaviria. One of the most emblematic buildings in the city, that has been closed to the public for many years.

The Escher exhibit, organised by the Italian group Athemisia, will feature some of the artist’s greatest work. Including ‘Hand with Reflecting Sphere’ (above), ‘Relativity’ and ‘Belvedere’. he selection goes through his career as a graphic artist whose mathematically inspired woodcuts and lithographs became part of popular imagery in Western cultures. In line with the artist’s interest in maths, the exhibition includes experiments, games and educational resources helping visitors understand his impossible perspectives, puzzling imagery and seemingly incommensurable worlds, brought together to add a unique dimension to art.
