A Sense of Wonder

15 Nov-31 Dec
City center
Exhibition genre

<div><span style="font-style: normal;">Maurits C. Escher's prints are world-famous. Nevertheless, curator Micky Piller has made a new discovery. The first exhibition ever to bring together M.C. Escher's secondary school days in Arnhem with the prints that he was to make thirty years later! <br />
<br />
During her first visit to Escher's former secondary school in Arnhem it became evident that there was a considerable degree of correspondence between the real world and a series of post-war prints by Escher. <br />
<br />
It is generally assumed that after he left Italy in 1935 reality had very little bearing on Escher's prints. People talk of his 'mindscapes', as opposed to the 'landscapes' that characterized his earlier work.&nbsp;<br />
<br />
<div><span style="font-style: normal;">It is now clear that "the hell of Arnhem", as Escher referred to his school days, was extremely significant for important prints such as Another World and Relativity, as well as several other prints that could also be associated with these. This research forms the basis of the new exhibition&nbsp;</span>A Sense of Wonder<span style="font-style: normal;">.</span></div>
