The Fries Museum in Leeuwarden's exhibition "Escher's Journey" is an homage to M.C. Escher. On display are drawings and objects which appear normal at first, but then reveal themselves to be completely contradictory.
Known for his perspective pictures and geometric lithographs, M.C. Escher is one of the best known graphic artists of the 20th century. His work is featured in his hometown, Leeuwarden, 2018 European Capital of Culture.
You won't believe your eyes when you look at these artists' works. Illusionists M.C. Escher, street artist Leon Keer, and others turn optical illusions into art. It takes a second look to see what's really there.
Leeuwarden in the northern Netherlands and Malta's capital Valletta are the European Cultural Capitals of 2018. Their approaches to culture, however, could hardly differ more.
Valletta has been officially inaugurated as the European Capital of Culture. Over 140 projects and 400 events have been planned in 2018 around three main themes: island stories, future baroque and voyages.
