Summer holidays! Time to relax, to escape, to discover. The holidays always offer a new perspective. A fresh look at daily life, an insight into other cultures, or simply a new appreciation of the comfort of your own home. It can also literally bring a new perspective: the view from an aeroplane. Escher, a master in playing with perspective, never had been on a plane in the 1930s. Yet, he could imagine this special perspective with the greatest ease.
Behold this print, an aeroplane above a snowy landscape. A patchwork of lots, cut through by a river. He would return to this theme in his famous print Day and Night.
Escher in The Palace wishes everyone new perspectives during their holidays. From a plane, a train, a car, a motor, a bike or your legs. But also in your own head.
