Escher & Mesquita|メスキータ展

Recalling my days in film production, I was involved in a M.C. Escher filming project, using the cutting edge technology, 3D film production in early 1990. The production was of a short film, to be shown at the Escher Museums at Huis Ten Bowch Theme Park (Nagasaki). M.C. Escher, is an Artist well-known for mathematically inspired art form and the film production portrayed his few art forms in 3D which I recall was quite a challenging production.

Only quite recently did I obtain knowledge that Samuel Jesserun de Mesquita (1868-1944) was a great influencer to M. C. Escher, a Dutch born artist into a Portuguese Jewish family, who worked in the genres of painting, printmaking and decorative art. M. C. Escher’s early works strongly resembles Mesquita’s.

東京ステーションギャラリーで「メスキータ」展をやっています。8月18日には終了してしまうのですがエッシャーが命をかけて守った師匠のメスキータの展示会は版画約180点、その他(油彩、水彩など)約60点、総数約240点の作品を5つの章分けで、見応えのある日本での初回顧展です。おすすめの展示会です。

Some Mesquita’s works can be enjoyed at these link sites : 

Being a great admirer of Escher, I visited Mesquita’s Exhibition, held running at the Tokyo Station Gallery (Address : 1-9-1 Marunouchi, Chiyoda City, Tokyo) until August 18th.
