Florence, Museo degli Innocenti
20 October 2022 - 26 March 2023
Barberino Designer Outlet is pleased to announce its partnership with Museo degli Innocenti for the exhibition dedicated to Escher. The major exhibition dedicated to the brilliant Dutch artist Maurits
Cornelis Escher will be held at Museo degli Innocenti in Florence from 20 October 2022 to 26 March 2023.
Enjoying increasing popularity with the general public in recent
years, Escher has become one of the world’s most beloved artists, and
exhibitions dedicated to him have shattered attendance records.
With about 200 pieces including the most representative ones that
brought him worldwide fame, this retrospective recounts the Dutch
artist’s genius through some of his most iconic works, such as Hand
with Reflecting Sphere (1935), Bond of Union (1956), Metamorphosis II (1939), Day and Night (1938), and the Emblemata series, all of which belong to the common imagery connected to this great artist.
The Escher show is planned as the first major exhibition event in the
monumental complex, designed by Filippo Brunelleschi, housing the
marvellous and abundantly rich Museo degli Innocenti. With
Arthemisia’s shows, the museum is already on its way to becoming one of the great art venues.
Combining art, mathematics, science, physics, nature and design, the
‘Escher’ exhibition provides a unique opportunity to take a more
in-depth look at a restless, reserved, yet unquestionably brilliant
artist, and to actively engage with the countless perspective,
geometrical and compositional paradoxes that underlie his works and
continue to inspire new generations of artists in every field.
With the patronage of the Municipality of Florence and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the exhibition was produced and
organized by Arthemisia in collaboration with the M. C. Escher
Foundation, Maurits and In Your Event, and was curated by Mark
Veldhuysen – CEO of the M.C. Escher Company – and Federico
Giudiceandrea, one of the world’s leading Escher experts.
