The Hague announced that in 2023 The Hague will “be the city of Escher”. M. C. Escher was a Dutch graphic artist born in June 1898, 125 years ago. To mark the occasion, exhibitions have been scheduled at the Escher museum and Kunstmusuem.
You probably know Escher from his impossible staircase (English Wikipedia) or his self-portrait in a reflecting sphere. One of my favorite jigsaw puzzles that I have worked on is Day and Night. I am really looking forward to when I can do that puzzle again.
The Hague’s city hall currently has a huge display honoring the artist:
It reminds me of the tribute they made in the same spot for the Dutch artist Piet Mondriaan back in 2017.
In 2023, The Hague will be the city of Escher (from the official website of The Hague)
The exhibit “Escher – Other World” is being held at the Kunstmuseum through 10 September 2023.
“The Escher exhibition” is being held at the Escher Museum through 1 October 2023.
