Exhibitions of Maurits Cornelis Escher and Jan van Toorn to Run in Moscow

The Moscow Museum of Modern Art is opening exhibitions of two Dutch artists: the classic of surrealistic graphic art Maurits Cornelis Escher and one of the foremost modern designers Jan van Toorn.

      Maurits Cornelis Escher gained fame with his drawings with optic illusions, where columns appear under and over parapets at the same time, and stairways downward turn into ladders upward. Jan van Toorn can be considered as the successor of Escher, however, he regards himself a visual journalist.

      The Moscow Museum of Modern Art will display calendars, books and magazines designed by Jan van Toorn. The peculiarity of his approach to design lies in emotionality and aspiration to convey the mood of the book in its design.

      The exhibitions will run from December 11 to February 9, 2014.
