Marc Bell Presents: The Magical World of M.C. Escher

Jan 20 - Apr 11, 2010
Boca Raton Museum of Art

The unforgettable visual puzzles and impossible structures of the Dutch artist Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972) have earned Escher worldwide acclaim. Printmaker, draftsman, book illustrator and muralist M.C. Escher became one of the most famous artists of the 20th century, and his graphic works are recognized worldwide. This retrospective exhibition was one of the most comprehensive and important exhibitions of Escher's work ever shown in the United States. It presented hundreds of rare original artworks - including the artist's original drawings, watercolors, prints, wood blocks, studio furniture, tool cabinet and memorabilia - from the M.C. Escher Family Collection, previously on loan to The Hague Museum.

This exhibition was organized by the Boca Raton Museum of Art in conjunction with Walker Fine Art/Rock J. Walker, and will be accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue. This exhibition is made possible through the generosity of Marc Bell.
