On the 19th of April, the Schools' drawing and technical drawing students enjoyed the creativity of the Dutch graphic artist, Maurits Cornelis Escher, when they visited the exbition showing at the Gaviria Palace. This is a temporary exhibition which has already visited a number of other countries and has amassed more than 700,000 visitors up to now.
The exhibition brings together a total of 200 creations from this graphic artist, a surealist, an intellectual and a mathematician. Escher has influenced the minds of scientists and the imagination of designers and has also exercised a strong influence over the art world. Students got up close to some of his masterpieces such as 'Hand with Reflecting Sphere', 'Relativity (or House of Stairs)' and 'Belvedere'.
The exhibition includes scientific experiments, play areas and other educational resources which helped our students to understand the impossible perspectives, the disconcerting images and the apparently incompatible universes of this Dutch artist.
