This tour highlights Escher’s journey as an artist – from his earlier works of nature and landscape in the 1920s and 1930s, to the figurative and abstract art developed in the late 1930s, through the 1960s when he sought to explore infinity. Included in the tour are some of Escher’s most iconic and recognizable masterpieces, including Hand with Reflecting Sphere, Belvedere, Metamorphosis, Day and Night.
Kids tour: in this tour, Infinity will guide her little brother Vertigo in the discovery of the artist and his work. Escher, from time to time, will step into the conversation, offering interesting details about his works of art.
