At home with M.C. Escher
Intimate, permanent exhibition
The Princessehof National Museum of Ceramics honours one of its most famous inhabitants: M.C. Escher
In 1898 Maurits Cornelis Escher, affectionately nicknamed ‘Mauk’, was born in the Princessehof in Leeuwarden. The National Museum of Ceramics now brings the world-famous graphic artist back to his birthplace with At home with Escher, an intimate exhibition in the basement of the city palace. Through photographs from his youth, objects and film fragments, the link between Escher and the Princessehof becomes clearer than ever.
