This comprehensive collection includes more than 150 works of the Dutch artist covering his entire artistic career and is enriched by numerous drawings and print media such as woodblocks and a lithographic stone. PANART is fully supported by the Escher Foundation to do museum exhibitions.
Aside from the iconic images that made this artist famous, such as “Drawing Hands”, “Waterfall”, “Eye”, “Relativity” and “Metamorphosis”, the collection features numerous seldom displayed prints such as the “Griffin of Borghese”, “Still Life and Street” and the entire set of his mezzotints (8 in total), among other works.
Each work has been framed taking into consideration the overall presentation of the image. Museum glass minimizes the mirror effect allowing for full enjoyment of the exhibition. Captions, mostly commented by the artist, explain the intricacies of the images and the techniques used to achieve the end result for all non-representational works.
From an educational perspective, this single-source collection is particularly suited and offers the opportunity to create new permanent educational programs based on Escher’s mathematically oriented depictions. This creates countless opportunities since his tessellations, studies of the infinite, metamorphosis and impossible geometries are found in most mathematical books, as well as in lectures given by many mathematicians.
– High resolution images, captions, wall texts.
– Requires about 375 linear ft. (depending on installation).
