Facing the challenging Grand Tour to the Italian peninsula, Maurits Cornelis Escher – Dutch graphic genius full of great imagination – arrived to Catania in 1936. Some of his creative expressions are on display in the Palace of Culture of Catania until 17 September 2017 http://www.mostraescher.it/ Just in Sicily, he reaped his synthesis of science and art, creating numerous graphic works, that caught in the drawings (which later turned into engravings), cities and lonely places. He drew the columns of the ancient Greek temples and the coasts of Catania with sailboats, mist and low clouds.
This exhibition offers you the opportunity to explore his multi-dimensional world, where mathematics and geometry become visual art. “Hand with Reflecting Sphere”, “Bond of union” and “Day and night” are some of his expressive worlds – bizarre works, which are indebted to science and mathematics – and are inspired by the architecture. Through the creative game, which appeals to viewers of all ages, certainly you’ll be fascinated by his geometrical shapes and prospective joints.
He, Maurits Cornelis Escher, the explorer of the impossible, will show the geometric possibilities of art.
