Exhibitions

The first exhibition in Catalonia of the work Maurits Cornelis Escher (Leeuwarden, Netherlands, 1898 - Laren, Netherlands, 1972) is achieving great public and critical success, thanks to the exceptional collection on display and the spectacular assembly, which includes science experiments, play areas and activities that help to understand the creative universe of the artist.

At Escher you can see more than 200 original works, which constitute an important retrospective of the enigmatic sketches and paradoxical designs of this author, starting with his first engravings and realistic drawings inspired by nature. The exhibition further explores the work of M. C. Escher around tessellation and the transformation of figures that illustrate how metamorphosis became a unique element of his art, combining fantasy and geometry. In the development of his mathematical research, Escher created inexhaustible images: his best-known works affect the representation of infinity.

The exhibition, curated by Mark Veldhuysen, CEO of the M.C. Escher Company, and by Federico Giudiceandrea, Italian collector and expert on the figure of the artist, is organized by Arthemisia, Evolucionarte and the Museu Marítim de Barcelona, ​​in collaboration with The M.C. Escher Foundation and with the support of the Barcelona City Council and Provincial Council, and with the participation of Rol Digital.

You can also book guided tours for groups and families who want to delve into Escher's work (see Buy Tickets).
