Exhibition: ‘Escher’ Liberty Figurative Art
Date(s) - 24 Jun 2016 - 29 Jan 2017
9:30 am - 7:30 pm
The exhibition features more than 200 works among the so-called “impossible objects”, tessellation and avant-garde influenced creations by liberty-inspired engraver, mathematician and visionary Escher analysing the artist’s love for Italy. The exhibition features an ideal journey within the artist’s creative development starting from his figurative liberty roots to his well-known love for Italy. Throughout works following his trips in discovery of the Spanish Alhambra and Cordova, visitors to the exhibition can spot the changes in his artistic production towards more geometrically oriented works, based on the use of never-seen-before perspectives which have deeply influenced the today’s digital technologies.
The exhibition is open Mon 2.30pm-7.30pm; Tue-Sun 9.30am-7.30pm; Thurs and Sat 9.30am-10.30pm.
The exhibition is promoted by la Rinascente to promote cultural entertainment in the city. Ticket offices close one hour before the closing hour.
