The Miracle of M.C. Escher

This comprehensive exhibition showcases over 150 pieces by the iconic Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher. “The Miracle of M.C. Escher: Prints from The Israel Museum, Jerusalem” commemorates the 120th anniversary of the artist’s birth, looking back at his incredible printmaking work which played with perspective, reflection and symmetry in a time well before the digital age. Escher’s mind-boggling images explored science, mathematics and geometry using techniques such as tessellation and optical illusions, inspiring and fascinating audiences around the world. In addition to an exhibition catalog and original merchandise from the Escher Foundation in the Netherlands, a selection of popular brands have created limited collaboration goods.
