Today the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art opened The Amazing World of M.C. Escher
, comprising over 100 works on loan from the Gemeentemuseum
in The Hague in The Netherlands, Escher's country. Original drawings, prints, mezzotints, woodcuts and lithographs confirm Maurits Cornelis Escher as the most original and popular artist of the 20th Century. Shown is his Bond of Union
(1956) which to me suggests the European Union sliced up and spinning out of control (CLICK
). Londoners, don't panic! M.C. Escher
comes to the Dulwich Picture Gallery on 14 October. The bad news is the price: £14 adults, £13 silver surfers (CLICK
). Note: visitors are charged only £9 adults or £7 silver surfers for the same exhibition in Scotland!
