Collection: M. C. Escher: Infinite Variations

Dutch artist Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898–1972) is possibly the world’s most well-known graphic artist, but he once vexed an interviewer by referring to himself as a mathematician!  Escher’s artistic output was considerable, and his mesmerizing visual puzzles, tessellations, and impossible buildings are among the most beloved and popular works of art in the world.  His fascination with mathematical theory motivated him to produce imagery that constantly challenged notions of reality and its underlying structures.

The Chrysler Museum will present more than 150 works by Escher from the collection of Paul and Melinda Firos of Athens, Greece in M.C. Escher: Infinite Variations. The exhibition will showcase works that span Escher’s career.
