Boca Raton Museum of Art Brings World-Class Works to South Florida

By: Kanika Jelks


Artist M.C. Escher's works speak for themselves. While his early pieces, started during the last century's infancy, mostly included linoleum-cut faces in many forms, his later works during the last half of the 20th century branched out into mathematical expressions and impossible images that were created in his mind. One of his most popular pieces, Drawing Hands, is a drawing where two hands are shown drawing each other. It's really cool!

Now, that very cool (to use a word that falls way short of the stature of Escher's portfolio) art is being featured in a fabulous collection here in Florida. The largest exhibit ever assembled in the country - 400 pieces in all - are on display at the Boca Raton Museum of Art. Not only can you see Escher's art, but his personal letters, desk, private works that have never been seen and much more wait for you at this exhibition.

Some of the more fascinating aspects to look for include the pastel drawing of Escher's famous lithograph, Between St. Peters and the Sistine Chapel, the proof and colored woodcut for Sphere Surface With Fish and...yes...Drawing Hands is included in the exhibit as well.

You'll love it - this once-in-a-lifetime collection of one of the world's most fascinating minds will give us all an education and something special to remember. I can't wait! See you there.
