Escher a Ferrara
From next March 23 Palazzo dei Diamanti, emblem of the Italian Renaissance, will host a large exhibition dedicated to Escher, one of the most beloved artists by the general public around the world.
From 23 March to 21 July 2024, the exhibition halls of the Palazzo dei Diamanti in Ferrara will host for the first time the works of Escher, a brilliant and visionary artist, always loved by mathematicians and rediscovered by the general public in relatively recent times.
Born in 1898 in Leeuwarden, Holland, Maurits Cornelis Escher has won the appreciation of millions of visitors thanks to his extraordinary ability to transport them into imaginative and seemingly impossible worlds.
The creations of the great Dutch master, who lived in Italy between the two wars, bring together countless themes and suggestions: from geometric theorems to mathematical intuitions, from philosophical reflections to the paradoxes of logic.
His unmistakable works, which have also influenced the world of design and advertising, are a challenge to perception and represent a unique in the panorama of art history of all time.
The exhibition ESCHER is organized by Arthemisia, Fondazione Ferrara Arte e Servizio Musei d'Arte del Comune di Ferrara, in collaboration with the M. C. Escher Foundation and Maurits and is curated by Federico Giudiceandrea, one of the most important experts of the artist, and Mark Veldhuysen, president of the M.C. Escher Foundation.
