Escher by the seaside

3 July to 28 August 2016

In the summer of 2016, Escher in The Palace showed how Escher spent his holidays. His whole life Maurits Cornelis Escher enjoyed the seaside. A selection of Escher’s own photos were shown in the Ballroom. Bathing costumes from the 1920s and 1930s from the collection of Kunstmuseum Den Haag (formerly: Gemeentemuseum Den Haag) were also displayed. It was also possible to photograph yourself wearing an old-fashioned beach-wear.
