Escher in The Palace celebrates 20th anniversary

Twenty years ago, on the 16th of November, 2002, Escher in The Palace was inaugurated by Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende. Over the past two decades, the museum has grown into a visitor magnet where anyone can enjoy the world-famous graphic artist M.C. Escher. Over the course of that period, Escher in The Palace has become the place where you can learn and see all about Escher’s life and work all year round. In addition, during the two decades, Escher in The Palace has always paid attention to the history of Lange Voorhout Palace, the former winter palace of Queen Emma, the Queen Mother. This joyful event is set to be celebrated with all kinds of festivities during our anniversary weekend on 19 and 20 November.

Escher by 14 November. Out of all the entries, we will choose the post that touches us the most.

Rinus Roelofs lecture

Artist and mathematician Rinus Roelofs will be giving a series of lectures (in Dutch) on Saturday 19 November about the wonderful universe of M.C. Escher. Roelofs’ spatial works are often inspired by M.C. Escher and in 2018 Escher in The Palace organised a successful exhibition around Roelofs in which his works were displayed among Escher’s prints.

Create your own linocut

On Sunday, people young and old will get a chance to create their own linocut in a workshop and discover their own creativity. You can join between 12.00 and 16.30 hours.

So come along and enjoy with us this wonderful combination of Maurits and Emma that has been on display on Lange Voorhout for two decades.
