Fascinating film about M.C. Escher

In this Escher in The Palace documentary from 2014, photographs, prints and letters bring the life and work of the world-famous printmaker M.C. Escher to new audiences. The 20-minute film showcases his body of work, themes, techniques used and many fascinations. You also learn more about his personal life, travels, longing for the sea, doubts and successes. It is a fascinating film about a unique artist.

This film is also a permanent part of the museum exhibition but, unfortunately, can only be watched by a limited number of people at this time. To make sure you do not miss this fantastic film, we recommend watching it before your visit.
