31 May 2017
The Escher, close up exhibition is closed. No less than 50,500 visitors have looked at the world through Escher’s eyes and have had the privilege to experience the artist up close. With this exhibition Escher in Het Paleis for the first time showed photo’s from Eschers personal archive. Visitors have caught a glimpse of his daily life and have seen how he works. From his preliminary studies through photo’s and drawings to his famous graphic works that resulted from them. To preserve them for following generations the albums from his personal archives are returned to the depot for a long time. But his extraordinary works will remain visible in the permanent exhibition at Escher in Het Paleis.
