FAM Presents Work of M.C. Escher in New Exhibition Opening May 27

COOPERSTOWN—Fenimore Art Museum brings the imaginative design, consummate draftsmanship and dreamy visions of the renowned M.C. Escher to the region with the exhibition, “M.C. Escher: Infinite Variations,” on view May 27 through September 4. This monumental show from the private collection of Paul and Belinda Firos of Athens, Greece spans Escher’s entire career, from his training in Haarlem, his Italian period, to his final years in the Netherlands. Visitors will see nearly every iconic image he produced.

“This exhibition has attracted record crowds in cities across the country and Fenimore is pleased to share it with everyone in Upstate New York throughout the summer,” said Dr. Paul S. D’Ambrosio, Fenimore Art Museum president and chief executive officer. “Escher’s work is complex yet easy to enjoy. Even if you are familiar with him, you will certainly find plenty of new and inspiring work in this impressive collection.”
