The exhibition was centered on the collection of Huis Ten Bosch Museum of Art, and was able to learn about Escher’s life and work. There were a lot of works that I have seen, but it was also interesting to get there as well as a deceptive picture.
I would like to introduce each chapter as usual, but I could not get a list of works, so I rely only on the notes I took at the venue. I’m sorry if I’m wrong or work name W

M.C. Escher “Self-portrait” ★ Can be seen here.
It is a self-portrait that is realistic like a photograph drawn in like a circular forehead. It was a man with a high nose that mustache with a little Golo eyes, and the sense that eyes matched with the person who was looked from the window W really is real and is fine.

There was an explanation about the upbringing of M.C. Escher (Maurits Cornelis Escher, Cornelius Escher) around here. M.C. Escher’s father, G.A. Escher (George Arnold Escher), studied hydro engineering and had a career in Japan as a foreigner hired in the Meiji era. It seems to have come to Japan to volunteer, and to have been involved in the renovation of Yodogawa and construction of Ryusho Elementary School in Fukui. It was explained that there was a common sensibility by arranging the photograph of Ryusho Elementary School and the “tetrahedron asteroid” of M.C. Escher.
I think it was his father’s influence, but Escher was learning about construction and decorative art in his boyhood.

M.C. Escher “The Adventure of the horrors of the Scara philosopher, page 5”
This is an illustration of a witch’s fairy tale. Woodcut in black and White, the witch in front of the fireplace is depicted. The fire spread from the fireplace, and a table and a broom were put on the ceiling, and a mysterious face floated like a ghost. Creepy and scary (>)

M.C. Escher “The Adventure of the horrors of the Scara philosopher page 21”
Is it a group of demons like Youkai? Countless animals and witches across the cane, farming tools and spoons are flying right into the horde. On the ground below, there are demons who have rituals or banquets. There is a sense of speed in the figure flying. It was a little comical, but it was also creepy.

Escher and the small animal.
Escher seems to have drawn sketches of small animals from his boyhood, and we can see some of them here.

M.C. Escher “Grasshopper”
It is a sketch of a large grasshopper with super precision. I wonder if I felt the grotesque of the grasshopper is too fine. It can be imagined that it was sharp that the observation eyes were also out of the person parallel though it is amazing to draw w considerably.

M.C. Escher “Academy Certificate of Completion”
The owl was drawn, and the river and the fire in the background? Buildings are depicted. I have no idea why this is a completion of the Academy W too bad that there is no commentary.

The fable of the twenty-four
The picture of various tools and machines was exhibited in this corner, and a message like the tweet of the subject of the picture was attached to each. Poetry? There was also a meaningful and funny hilarious.

M.C. Escher “Vase”
The flower which seems to be a gerbera in the picture of the vase is arranging. I am surprised to be drawn to the petals finely, but even more surprising is the printing tree which is exhibited next to it. In order to make a fine line, I was able to see this delicate carving. It is an interesting point of this exhibition that there is sometimes a block on display.

M.C. Escher “Flint”
Only the hand and the flint are drawn greatly, and the moment of striking the flint is drawn. The afterimage which drew the trajectory of the hand remains, and a thick radiation has come out from the flint. The action to hit the fire had been powerfully expressed.

M.C. Escher “Candle Fire”
A short candle that burns in the dark is drawn. The location is very good.

Italy era
Escher was fascinated by Italy travel Italy, and often traveled Italy, and after marrying a woman she had met at a travel destination, he lived in Rome. In this corner, there were works on Italy.

M.C. Escher “Inside the Basilica of San Pietro (Rome)” ★ Can be seen here.
This is a woodblock print depicting the famous St. Peter’s Basilica. It was a composition that looked down from the ceiling to the bottom, and the mosaic of the floor was drawn by the expression of less than Milli. I think that the atmosphere of the work of later years to see well was felt.

M.C. Escher “Morano (Calabria)”
I’m drawing a pile of houses on a triangle. The angle was different, but when I saw it compared to the actual photograph, I felt the atmosphere like Escher though it was similar.

M.C. Escher “Puddle”
It is a woodcut with a little light blue. There is a car tire trace (rut) in the puddle, and it is understood that it is muddy. In addition, the trees and the moon reflected in the puddle. The tree etc. seemed to feel like a Japanese atmosphere because of the nature (← I’m just saying leave it felt because there is no commentary W)

Around the writers >
There was a similar printmaker in the vicinity of Escher, and it was introduced to the work of the writer who had the friendship relation in this corner.

Samuel Yeisslun de Mezquita “Old man”
This guy is Escher’s teacher. Escher’s talent was taught the basics of the print. After that, Escher was a lifelong association, but he died with his family in a concentration camp due to the Nazi Jewish policy that emerged afterwards.
This print is drawn by an old man who faces down. It was intuitively understood that Escher’s style was derived from this person because the expression was delicately drawn with a fine line. A good teacher taught me the basics well.

Giuseppe Haas Trivelio “Corsica (Corsica)”
It was described as a resident of Monte Verde who lived in the Italy age. Escher is a friend who opened a two-person exhibition together. This print was a picture of the city, with a lot of black pieces, but it was a vivid atmosphere.

Yestta Escher Umiker(Sorry, I forgot the name of the work)
This guy is Escher’s wife. I met Escher at a Minshuku. This picture depicts a man who is leaning against a tree on the Hill of the sea and wearing a crown that looks up, and a colorful bird (like a bird of paradise) with a face of a Chinese woman standing on a tree above it. I think the man below had a face like Escher.

There were also works by other nearby authors, but omitted.

Tricks >
Well, I think Escher is famous for his work, which incorporates geometric tricks and mathematical and visual tricks. The work was introduced from here. There was also a lot of work that I saw in this summer, “The Kingdom of the Bunkamura” exhibition.

M.C. Escher “Control (Order and Chaos)”
The one that the dodecahedron was covered with a round bubble was put in the center, and the garbage such as the empty cans of the canned goods and the egg shells and the splinter of the jar were drawn around it. The dodecahedron seemed to be a symbol of order, and it was a comparison with the surrounding garbage (chaos). There was also a close contrast II.

M.C. Escher “The Stars”
A star-shaped lattice with a combination of triangles is drawn, and a chameleon is in it and the tongue is stretched. This star type shows order, and the Chameleon expresses the disorder. It seems to have been invented as a result that the interest to the polyhedron was boiled from the book “General mineralogy and crystallography” of G.B. Escher which is the half brother as for the work of the dodecahedron earlier.

There was an explanation of Escher’s style around here. When Escher travels to Spain, he has a profound experience that will have a significant impact on his subsequent work. When I went to the Alhambra, he was very interested in the arabesque of the mosaic pattern, not the architecture. And, it was reproduced for three days and it brought it back, and it invented the work which obtained the idea from there, and the white and the black complement each other.

M.C. Escher “Encounters” ★ Can be seen here.
White optimists and black which troupe are combined together without a gap. In the foreground, both groups are separated from side to side in a circle, and each other shakes in the foreground. It is interesting that this bizarre complement was inspired by mosaic. Was Escher connected with the idea to combine it because he was studying architecture related? I was watching while thinking.

M.C. Escher “Day and Night” ★ Can be seen here.
This is a lot of people who saw the Bunkamura in the art of deception? This is an idea from the mosaic pattern, too. It is interesting even if I see it many times.

M.C. Escher “Jockey”
The jockey and the horse drawn in the Ring of the Mobius (it is a circle that the back is a table in the back side in the shape where the character of Infinity is written) are lined up. This was also a horse and a jockey complementing each other’s shape in black and white. It was particularly interesting to have a jockey pose and a horse’s front paw. There was a printing tree next to it.

M.C. Escher “Sky and Water I” ★ Can be seen here.
This is also a piece where white fish and black birds complement each other. The upper part is drawn a dense bird, gradually simplified as you approach the center, the fish in the bottom is drawn to the figure is dense when it becomes below the center. It is interesting that such gradually changing works are also born creatures.

M.C. Escher “Sun and Moon”
This is a white bird and a red bird combine, and it is drawn by 14 feathers without a gap. The birds are all in different shapes! When you look at the white bird, you can see the moon in the middle of the night and the shining brightly of the sun when you pay attention to the red bird, and it was very surprising that it was a work that asks human vision.

M.C. Escher “Transfiguration (Metamorphose) ii.-v.”
On the left is a city like the Citadel City, where the tower stretched from there becomes a chess rook, and the right side is a chess board. There is a picture corner next to this work, but when you watch it, you can see that it is part of a long work like a picture scroll. This castle also changed the ■ □ ■ Series, and it became like a castle, and it was interesting to change the idea that it was made to be different by a little.

M.C. Escher “Planar regular division”
The check pattern became a bird, and the white Shadow of a black bird was drawn to become a flying fish. Even though the technique has been established, I think that it is a phenomenal idea to create a variety of patterns. There was a 13-minute VTR that explained Escher’s life near the picture, and I felt that I was always seeking surprises as Escher himself said.

M.C. Escher “fish-patterned ball”
This is a sculpture of the sphere made of the tree of the Tsuge. The black fish which was combined were carved without a gap. The work of the print is often seen, but is the one point like this valuable??

Weekly Shonen Magazine and Escher
Suddenly, there was a book of comics, this is the third issue from the February 8, 1970 issue of “Giant Star” or “Tomorrow’s Joe” in the old Weekly Shonen magazine. This is Escher’s cover.“Belvedere (Tower of Sight)”The bond of marriage“Mobius Ring”It had become. It was also the last time the popular work was sold more than usual help. I wish this collaboration would be more modern.

Escher’s Labyrinth.
At the end, there were a number of typical works by Escher. Escher was not understood by the Art association, and it seemed to have been neglected, and it was a scientist, a mathematician, and a young person to have begun to evaluate it. It was introduced favorably in magazines such as “Time”, and the popularity increased.

M.C. Escher “Reptiles” ★ Can be seen here.
It depicts a crocodile walking backward clockwise from the picture of the plane on the ground, climbing the book, resting on a regular dodecahedral figurine, crossing the Cup, and finally returning to the picture. Both of them are not the same as the picture, but it was interesting to see them coming out of the picture. Because of the difference in depiction.

M.C. Escher “Three Worlds”
This is a work depicting a pond. In the three worlds, the fish in the water in the foreground, the trees reflecting on the surface of the water, and the fallen leaves floating on the surface were simultaneously expressed. It seems to be a seemingly normal scenery, but I thought that Escher’s sensibility was truly found in the three worlds.

M.C. Escher, “The study of Snakes”
This is the last work of my life. Something like a snake is drawn, but it was on the way of writing. Escher finally died at the age of 73 in a facility for an aged artist. I continued to draw in active duty until the end. I thought that this exhibition was a great painter in many ways.

There were also “tetrahedron asteroids”, “Double Planets”, “Rise and Fall”, “irregularities,” “Waterfalls,” “Deep”, “Top and Bottom”, “hand with mapping spheres,” “Another World” and “Belvedere”. Some of them have written their impressions at the time of the art of deception, so I hope you will read them.

It is not directly related to this exhibition,Poster Sales PageI also had a lot of work on this exhibition. I might want to cheap w

So, it was an exhibition that you can learn about Escher carefully. I think that there are a lot of works that can be enjoyed even by people who are not interested in art, so it can be enjoyed even by family and couples.
