Escher's Universe

Escher’s Universe is based on the life and work of the multifaceted Maurits Cornelis Escher.

Was he an artist, an astronomer, a mathematician, a traveler?

This show will take us to the artist’s studio where his most iconic works are displayed. From this intimate and emotional place, we’ll visit Escher’s particular universe and we will be surprised by his ability to join Science and Art.

He uses mathematics, astronomy, optics, crystallography and geometry in his creations to artistically explain very complex concepts addressed by Cosmology. Escher’s shapes, three-dimensional reconstructions, dual worlds, unreal buildings or impossible continuities reveal his passion for knowledge.
