Fries Museum – Escher’s journey


The Museum of Friesland organised a major exhibition about M.C. Escher which opened in april 2018, the year that Leeuwarden-Fryslân is the Cultural Capital of Europe.

M.C. Escher is perhaps Leeuwarden’ most famous resident, a fact unknown to a large number of Escher fans and residents of Friesland. He was born in 1898 in the city palace on the Grote Kerkstraat, the building that now houses the Princessehof National Museum of Ceramics.
