The great exhibition dedicated to the brilliant Dutch artist Maurits Cornelis Escher arrives at the Museo degli Innocenti in Florence from 20 October 2022 to 7 May 2023. Discovered by the general public in recent years, Escher has become one of the most loved artists in the world, so much so that the exhibitions dedicated to him have broken all visitor records.
Escher was born in 1898 in Holland and died there in 1972. In 1922 he visited Italy for the first time, where he then lived for many years, visiting it from north to south and representing it in many of his works. Restless, reserved and undoubtedly brilliant, Escher in his famous engravings and lithographs creates a unique, imaginative, impossible world, where art, mathematics, science, physics, design converge.
An anthology - with about 200 works and the most representative works that have made him famous all over the world - which tells the genius of the Dutch artist with the most iconic works of his production such as Mano con sphere reflective (1935), Vincolo d ' union (1956), Metamorphosis II (1939), Giorno e notte (1938) and the series of Emblemata, which belong to the common imaginary referable to the great artist.
Escher's exhibition is configured as the first major exhibition event within the monumental complex - designed by Filippo Brunelleschi - which houses the wonderful and very rich Museo degli Innocenti which, with the exhibitions signed by Arthemisia, has already begun to be home to great art exhibitions.
