The exhibition

300 works shown at Palazzo Bonaparte until the 5th of May. Rome welcomes the largest Escher exhibition ever held, to pay homage to the famous Dutch artist.

Among the masterpieces on display there are Hand with Reflecting Sphere, Bond of Union, Metamorphosis II, Day and Night. The exhibition also includes numerous unpublished works, unknown to the general public.

It’s a tribute to Escher on the occasion of the centenary of his first trip to Rome, where he lived for 12 years, from 1923 to 1935. His works stand out for their great ability to attract a rather large audience. Engravings and lithographs transport the observer into an imaginary universe, in which art, science, physics, mathematics and design mix together. The themes addressed are numerous, making Escher a unique example in the art world.

His stay in Rome profoundly influenced his subsequent works, which concentrated in particular on the production of lithographs and engravings mostly of landscapes and architecture of ancient and baroque Rome, especially in nocturnal guise. To bear witness to these years of Escher’s life, the exhibition presents the series of twelve Roman nocturnes from 1934. The exhibition is curated by Federico Giudiceandrea, considered one of the greatest Escher experts in the world.
