Summer holidays! Time to relax, to escape, to discover. The holidays always offer a new perspective. A fresh look on daily life, insight into other cultures, or just a new appreciation of the comfort of your own home. It can also bring a literal new perspective: the view from an aeroplane. Escher, a master in playing with perspective, never flew in a plane in the 30s. 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.
