The latest Escher Today 23 April 2022

State of confusion

To create confusion. That was what God had in mind when he made the people who were building a tower to heaven all speak different languages. In no time at all, it was chaos, and the construction was stopped immediately. For if you can no longer talk to each other,…

Expected: Playing with Mirrors

Escher in The Palace will be looking in the mirror of M.C. Escher this summer. Escher’s world is a mirrored world – a game of repetition and reflection, looking and being amazed. His self-portraits in convex mirrors show the graphic artist himself in just such an alternative world. The reflections in natural scenes or small Italian streets betray Escher's love of the possibilities that reflections bring. This summer, you will experience Escher's fascination with reflections in Escher in The Palace. A fascination that continues to grip contemporary artists to this day.

Andy Warhol

Escher in The Palace is currently showing a special selection of ten portraits by Andy Warhol. This iconic American Pop Art artist shared his love for graphic arts with M.C. Escher. The screen printing technique that Warhol often chose, gave him the opportunity to make his work in editions, so that his art was available to as many people as possible. Escher also chose printmaking for the same reason: accessibility is of great importance to both artists. In addition, the work of both artists is characterised by principles such as reflection and repetition.

Glass sculptures by Tomas Hillebrand

Escher in The Palace enriches its playful second floor with three glass artworks by Tomas Hillebrand. As an artist, Hillebrand (Amsterdam, 1977) graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy with large charcoal drawings, but after his training he turned to making glass sculptures. Whereas glass is often used to make functional objects, Hillebrand's fascination lies in creating autonomous works of art. In his recent work, the spherical glass sculptures are often silvered, so that the viewer sees himself reflected in the glass.
