VERO BEACH, FLA.- The Vero Beach Museum of Art
announced a new exhibition featuring the works of world-renowned graphic artist and arguably the most famous printmaker of the modern era, Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972), M.C. Escher: Infinite Variations, will open at the VBMA on September 30, and will be on display through December 30, 2023.
The exhibition will feature more than 100 works and showcases Escher's various groundbreaking techniques and subjects. The exhibition will display works throughout his career – from his early Italian landscape sketches, self-portraits, and book illustrations to his most iconic images of impossible spaces, tessellations, infinity, and his metamorphosis series.
"Escher has to be one of the most recognized artists of the twentieth century. His mind- bending, reality-warping prints include subjects like infinite staircases, tessellating birds changing into fish and back again, and two hands drawing one another," says VBMA Executive Director Brady Roberts. "His work is known and beloved today by everyone from kids to designers to scientists, and we're looking forward to sharing it with all our visitors."
This is the world's largest private traveling Escher collection and includes woodcuts, lithographs, drawings, and all eight mezzotints from his career. VBMA visitors will see his best-known prints as well as lesser- known works, and also get a glimpse into the artist’s process with a woodblock study and lithographic stone.
