Know More about this tour

The art of Escher instills a sense of bewilderment and wonder, and fascinates young and old alike with his magical world. The exhibition includes famous impossible prints such as Day and Night, where the Dutch landscape appears to morph into a flock of birds, and Climbing and Descending which depicts rows of people perpetually ascending and descending a flight of stairs. His fantastical structures, which couldn't possibly exist in the real world, are optical illusions that play with perspective.
As well as showcasing his famous prints, The Palace also houses a collection of Eschers early works, such as the beautiful Italian landscapes, studies of Moorish mosaics and bizarre still lives. The photographs of Eschers family capture the private life of Escher, and the wood blocks and lithographic stones familiarize visitors in an accessible manner with his working methods.

Experience the world of Escher:

The second floor has been changed into a special experience for the presentation: In the Eye of Escher. An optical illusion depicts something which is in fact impossible. M.C. Escher was a master in this field. An optical illusion literally means doing puzzles with your eyes. The visitor will be able to unravel some of Eschers mysteries like the Impossible Penrose Triangle by constructing one himself. The extra presentation In the Eye of Escher shows various themes in which Escher was involved, like reflection, perception and perspective.
