Escher visited the Alhambra on two occasions; 1922 and 1936. The second visit, of which we are celebrating the 75th anniversary, made an impact that marked a before and after in the works of the brilliant Dutchman. His profound interest of mathematics, architecture and geometry marked his work. To commemorate this visit, The Parque de las Ciencias and the Patronato of the Alhambra have produced this exhibition that shows that decisive moment and the subsequent production that followed. With an avant-garde and enveloping design, the show includes 135 works from the Escher Foundation, where we can see the transition from still life to the manipulation of reality through his optical illusions. A fascinating visit to his Imaginary worlds.
