Pictures He exhibited for the first time in The Hague
Maurits Cornelis Escher did his prints with the help of photography. Those photos are from next month for the first time to see in the museum Escher in het Paleis in The Hague.
“In just ordered photo albums he collected for himself in the snapshots of beautiful memories and interesting images. After his death, his archive only viewed by a select group of historians,” according to the museum.
That gives the visitors with the exhibition Escher, close up for the first time, a look at a selection from His personal photo archive.
“His photographs provide not only an insight into his daily life and in his head, they also give an unprecedented view on his working method as an artist. They show how he was searching for composition and visual illusion.”
