#layer-duo-1777

Images by artist Maurits C. Escher (1898–1972) fascinate audiences with their imaginative design, consummate draftsmanship, and dreamy visions. His mind-bending prints include subjects like infinite staircases, tessellating birds changing into fish and back again, and two hands drawing each other.

This is the largest private Escher collection on exhibition in the world, including woodcuts, lithographs, drawings, and mezzotints. You will see his best-known prints as well as lesser-known works, spanning his entire career from his earliest print to his final masterpiece. You’ll also get a glimpse into the artist's process with a woodblock study and lithographic stone. Collection of Paul and Anna Belinda Firos, Athens, Greece.
