Escher in The Palace is a permanent exhibition dedicated to the world-famous, imaginative artist M.C. Escher. Read about our permanent collection and temporary exhibitions.
In an article in the Volkskrant, dating 23 February, Escher is subject to some very unfortunate framing. This gives rise to the impression of Escher having been a collaborationist, and that is unwarranted. Escher was not a Nazi sympathizer. Our curator Dunja Nadjézjda Hak explains.
Escher was first and foremost a graphic designer. That said, he also produced a variety of designs for art in public spaces. For example, he designed some magnificent tiled pillars with regular tessellations for two schools. The pillars were recently restored and relocated, and now for the first time the original tiles can be seen in Escher in Het Paleis!
It is with pride that Escher in The Palace presents our new audio guide with 8 masterpieces from M.C. Eschers oeuvre. Discover these remarkable works in a new way by looking at them closely while hearing what makes them so special.
