A major exhibition on the brilliant Dutch artist who is one of the best loved by the general public the world over
The major exhibition devoted to the brilliant Dutch artist Maurits Cornelis Escher is being held at the Salone degli Incanti in Trieste from 18 December 2019 to 7 June 2020.
Escher was born in Holland in 1898 and died there in 1972. In 1922 he came to Italy for the first time and made the country his home for many years, travelling its whole length form north to south and depicting it in many of his works. Restless, reserved and an undisputed genius, in his famous engravings and lithographs Escher created a unique, imaginative, impossible world combining art, mathematics, science, physics and design. Discovered by the general public in recent years, he has become one of the most popular artists worldwide, in fact his exhibitions have had record visitor attendance.
Now a retrospective comprising 200 works and all his masterpieces is coming to Trieste, thanks to Trieste City Council and Arthemisia, which confirms the partnership previously crowned by the resounding success of the exhibition 'I Love Lego', which was a record-breaking event to date for the capital city of the Friuli Venezia Giulia region.
