The Chrysler Museum of Art presents the work of M.C. Escher in spring exhibition

The Chrysler Museum of Art brings the mesmerizing work of the renowned M.C. Escher to Norfolk. M.C. Escher: Infinite Variations, on view April 15–Aug. 28, spans the Dutch artist’s entire career with more than 150 works from the collection of Paul and Belinda Firos of Athens, Greece. Although Escher was the modern period’s most well-known graphic artist, he once puzzled an interviewer by referring to himself as a mathematician rather than an artist. Escher’s fascination with mathematical theory motivated him to produce imagery that constantly challenged notions of reality and its underlying structures. The Chrysler’s comprehensive exhibition will chronicle his journey as one of the world’s most recognized artists by presenting the full range of media in which he worked. Visitors will see woodcuts, lithographs, etchings and even a lithography stone. Among the objects are some of his most iconic pieces, i
