Dr. David Steel discusses M.C. Escher, Zoom Presentation, October 28, 2021, 2pm EST

Bruce Silverstein Gallery is pleased to host Dr. David Steel, curator of M.C. Escher: Prints, Drawings, Watercolors and Textiles, to discuss the exhibition and the artist's influences and process.

The exhibition features seventy-five works by one of the 20th century’s most important print-makers, and this is the first ever New York gallery venue to display a survey of M.C. Escher’s oeuvre, providing insight into his intellectual and artistic interests as well as visual evidence of his unsurpassed technical virtuosity. On display are the finest examples of Escher’s work, including iconic prints, rare watercolors, exquisite early drawings, as well as a one-of-a kind printed textile from his own home; one of 12 known textiles extant, and the largest of its kind.

Dr. David Steel, former Curator of European Art at the North Carolina Museum of Art, was the curator of the exhibition The Worlds of M. C. Escher: Nature, Science, and Imagination, for which he was the primary author of its accompanying catalogue. David Steel is a graduate of Dickinson College, where he majored in Latin and Fine Arts. He received his M.A. and Ph.D. in the History of Art from Bryn Mawr College. He has organized numerous exhibitions and published works on a variety of topics including Renaissance, medieval, and baroque art; Rembrandt’s etchings and copperplates; Outsider and folk art; Monet; Rodin; and, most recently, pareidolia.
