The Man Who Discovered Escher: Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita

In 2023 it will be 125 years since Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972) was born. Escher is a celebrated artist, but this would not have been the case had it not been for his mentor and good friend Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita (1868-1944). From next February, the striking work of De Mesquita will hang alongside that of his most famous pupil at Escher in The Palace.

We are celebrating the anniversary year 2023 with a special exhibition on Escher and his teacher and close friend Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita. This exhibition complements the permanent exhibition with the best-known works from Escher's oeuvre. The museum houses more than 125 works by Escher and 70 prints and drawings by Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita. These magnificent prints are being exhibited in a regal setting: the former winter palace of Queen Mother Emma.
